An indefinite national strike called for by the Suntracs and Capac construction unions is set to begin at 06:00 (local time) on Wednesday, April 18. Protests by striking workings are likely in Panama City on Wednesday during the morning rush hour (and potentially every morning throughout the duration of the strike). Associated roadblocks are possible despite calls from union leadership to minimize disruptions to residents.
Workers are demanding a salary increase of 60 percent over four years.
Individuals in Panama are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution.
