Mindelo, Sep 2 (Inforpress) – Young law graduate Jorge Duarte was elected this Sunday as coordinator of the General Industry, Food, Construction, Agriculture, Services, Forests, Maritime and Port Services Union (SIACSA), in São Vicente island.
Jorge Duarte, who succeeds Jaílson Delgado in his post, was elected with 40 votes from the 52 associates present during the 5th General Assembly of the workers of São Vicente, which took place at the Salesian School under the theme “More Dignity and Respect for the Union.”
In a press interview, the newly elected coordinator promised “pro-productivity, strength and humility” to “carry” the name of the union and all members who bet on its coordination.
“The problems are many, they are deep and they are something that many companies hide. Let’s work from the bottom up. There is a policy of fear implemented because if a worker comes forward they put him in a situation of threat of dismissal, ”criticized Jorge Duarte, who promised first to tidy up the house, then to deal with outstanding issues between workers and businesses.
