Peru: Civil Service Act threatens trade union rights

Peru: Civil Service Act threatens trade union rights

In partnership with Public Services International, representing 20 million workers who deliver vital public services in 150 countries.

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!.
