São Vicente: SIACSA denounces “climate of fear” among workers to expose claims


Mindelo, Jan 19 (Inforpress) – The president of the Industry, Agriculture, Commerce, Services and Related Union (SIACSA) said today in Mindelo that “there is fear among workers” to expose their demands and they are “oppressed in São Vicente “.

“They do not want to talk, they have their problems inside, afraid of losing their jobs or to be not bad for their bosses,” Gilberto Lima said to reporters at the end of a visit to Sao Vicente.

The trade unionist, at the request of the journalists to explain how this alleged fear occurs, said that workers talk about reprisals and they may suffer denouncing certain situations.

“I could see that there is a sense of revulsion inside, among the professionals I contacted, who keep the claims to themselves,” said the same source.
