Christmas and mass strikes: why December 4 will be so special

December will be marked not only by Christmas, but also by strikes. Until Christmas, strikes take place every day in the country. The main demand from trade union leaders is more pay for workers.

The strikes will take place on the railways, buses, mail carriers, health care and education, among others. Strikes will be shaped by work stoppages and so-called ‘walkouts’, in which employees stop working for a certain period of time. Staff are demanding support during high inflation and more investment in the public sector.

December 4 will be the day when we will have the least to deal with the strikes. On that day, only a few ‘walk outs’ are planned in the timetable of the buses. In addition, major strikes will be organised every day until 24 December.
