If he was a reporter who was looking at what happened in the last hours with an attack on the port, he would say that everyone has everything. This is because TPS, the president of the consortium operating the company, the government, the mayor of Valparaiso and mobilized temporary workers went out to make statements.
One of the first was Richard von Appen, president of Ultramar, a consortium operating the TPS. The businessman said that "yes, we are intransigent with the people who have broken, who are attacking our offices and our people."
This prompted the Government's current response, in the voice of Transport Minister Gloria Hutta, who assured that the intransigence was not received by workers.
Even more important was the mayor of Valparaiso, Horge Sharp, who ordered him to stop it. "If you do not want to help resolve the conflict, you better be silent, do it for Valparaiso," he said.
TPS ignored unemployment
After that, TPS information is known: they did not even know that there was a strike. "We want to be very clear: there is no entry strike in Valparaiso. Our terminal has been operating continuously since November 28th, and we have served all clients who have been looking for services from us because we have more than 350 port workers today doing their jobs normally," said is the general manager of company Oliver Veinreich.
Voice of workers
These words were given when leaders of nearly 400 mobilized workers apologized for the demonstrations in the morning in Valparaiso.
"We had a consensus last night (Wednesday) not to do anything today (Thursday), besides talking to the government, so let's rest, wait for the answer, it will be quiet during the day," said Cooperativi Francisco Baez, one of the leaders movement.
Nevertheless, despite the publication of the negotiating table, at the end of this edition, unemployment remained.
