SUNTRACS set for arbitration


The arbritraje raised by President Juan Carlos Varela to the National Union of Construction Workers and the like (Suntracs) and the Panamanian Chamber of Construction (Capac), to end the strike in the construction sector, will be analyzed Tuesday by the workers’ union.

This was reported on Sunday, May 13, the leader of Suntracs, Genaro López , who said that the issue will be addressed during the assembly to be held at 10:00 am, at the Porras Park.

Workers insist on a salary increase of 11% per year, while employers maintain on the table a proposal of 1% per year.

In this regard, Lopez said that the proposal of the Capac is not to reach an agreement and if not improve it will be impossible to achieve it.
