Peruvian transport unions call for indefinite nationwide strike from July 4

In Peru, transport unions call for an indefinite nationwide strike in Peru from July 4. Transport and business disruptions are likely. 

Members of transport unions, including Union of Multimodal Transport Unions of Peru (Union de Gremios de Transporte Multimodal del Peru, UGTRANM), have called for an indefinite nationwide strike from July 4. Groups are specifically planning to stop public transport services in Lima and Callao and transport workers, including groups of taxi drivers, freight transporters, and urban transit workers, are likely to strike nationwide.

The action has been called to protest high fuel prices and to make salary demands. The organizers have stated that they will support peaceful marches but are not planning to stage blockades; however, individuals may carry out independent blockades without their permission.

Public transit, freight transportation, and business disruptions are likely from July 4, particularly in Lima and Callao. Spontaneous protests and blockades are possible, and it is likely security will be heightened in anticipation of this possibility.
