Violence against health trade unionists in Guatemala

Public Services International (PSI) is calling on affiliated unions to protest at a recent escalation of violent attacks on members of the SNTSG health union in Guatemala. A PSI report gives the background to recent violence which follows on the cases of 58 trade unionists murdered in recent years, in particular the murders in March 2013 of Carlos Hernandez and Santa Alvarado of SNTSG (National Health Workers’ Union of Guatemala) and Kyra Zulueta Enr√≠quez Mena (Union of the Municipality of Nueva Concepci√≥n).
