One of the concentrations will take place in front of the headquarters of the Banco de Seguros del Estado, from where the workers will march to the headquarters of the national government where they will deliver a note to President Lacalle Pou.

The leaders of the Association of Bank Employees of Uruguay (Aebu) maintain that for a month they have not had an instance of negotiation with the Government, for which, in case of not receiving new proposals for dialogue from the executive, the protest measures will continue to apply.

A 24-hour strike is scheduled for this Monday at Banco República branches and agencies, as well as a seven-hour strike at Cashiers and Cash Management in the Money Logistics sector in Brou. The end time of the stoppage will be communicated during the mobilization.

These mobilizations take place within the framework of the campaigns and mobilizations around the referendum on the Law of Urgent Consideration, whose repeal has been requested, among many others, by the banking unions.

It is expected that next Tuesday night, the bipartite commission that analyzes the new changes in the collective labor agreement meets to receive new proposals from the Government.
