Peru: Civil Service Act threatens trade union rights
Peru's proposed new Civil Service Law contains serious threats to human rights including the labour and trade union rights of over half a million Peruvians who provide public services. If approved, it will:
* remove the right of public sector unions to negotiate wages
* determines a model of union organisation in the sector
* allow for the implementation of reforms in the structure of employment and public services without any legislative consultation.
* deny the right to strike in essential sectors, without defining which sectors are essential.
Tell the President of Peru that you won't stand for such an erosion of union rights!.
