Honduras News Alert

Several transport unions to begin nationwide strike on September 7; avoid associated demonstrations and anticipate disruption to public transport services

TIMEFRAME expected from 9/7/2020, 12:00 AM until 9/14/2020, 11:59 PM (America/Tegucigalpa). COUNTRY/REGION Honduras

Event

Several transport unions have called for a nationwide strike to begin on Monday, September 7, due to the economic impacts of the restrictions which the government has imposed during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has had on the transport sector. According to media sources, transport workers are demanding alternative reopening strategies for the transportation sector.

Intercity bus drivers have reportedly stated they will not participate in the strike action; however, bus service disruptions between cities and disruption to other public transport services remain possible. Associated demonstrations are also possible and a heightened security presence in the vicinity of all protests is likely. 

Advice

Those in Honduras, particularly in Tegucigalpa and other urban centers, are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, monitor developments, anticipate transportation and business disruptions near protest sites, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities. Those planning on utilising alternative overland transportation methods during the strike period should also be aware of a surge in demand for these services.
