6,500 port workers in Chile on two-day strike

Port workers in Chile have begun a two-day strike action to demand better working conditions through an agreement with the country’s government.

Around 6,500 stevedoring workers, members of the Chilean port union, Union Portuaria, present in 23 ports and terminals throughout the country, launched a 48-hour strike on Wednesday (26 October) morning and are expected to return to work at 8:00 am on Friday (28 October).

The ports that are expected to be the most affected by demonstrations and work stoppages are Antofagasta, San Antonio, Iquique, and San Vicente, while less or no impact is anticipated at the ports of Arica, Coquimbo, and Valparaiso.
