“We have decided to make a temporary interruption of the recurrent mobilizations that we have been doing on Wednesdays”, said in a press conference the president of the Central Unitary Workers’ Union (CUT), Francisco Maltés.

The union leader assured that “the social mobilization is going to continue because the causes that have generated it remain in force” and in that sense, he announced a “great concert” next Sunday, the beginning of social dialogue to build several bills with their demands and mobilization towards Congress on July 20.
