West Coast Labor Solidarity Tour


Alex Gómez, a long-time leader in El Salvador’s union movement and a member of the National Lottery Workers Union (SITRALONB) Executive Board, will be touring cities on the West Coast of the United States from February 3-13, 2013 as part of CISPES’ Labor Solidarity Tour. During his visit, Mr. Gómez hopes to forge new solidarity ties with US labor groups and activists to share experiences, perspectives and strategies in the transnational fight for workers’ rights and dignity as his union and its allies prepare to face off against a proposed Public-Private Partnership law.
