Labor Solidarity Tour


In El Salvador and in the United States unions and public services are UNDER ATTACK. But in both countries, workers are fighting back!

From February 3 to 13, 2013, two leaders of El Salvador's organized labor movement will tour the East and West Coasts of the United States to share experiences, perspectives and strategies in the transnational fight for workers’ rights and dignity. They will detail the movement's campaign against the US-sponsored Public-Private Partnership Law currently under debate in the Salvadoran legislature, which threatens to put the last of El Salvador's public services and industries on the corporate chopping block.

If you are interested in helping plan events in your city or would like to invite one of the tour guests to meet with your union or organization, please contact the CISPES committee in your city.

To get updates as we post more information about events as they are planned, follow the Labor Solidarity Tour on Twitter or Facebook.
