24 June 2013
Following actions from PSI affiliate SITRANDE (Sindicato de Trabajadores de la ANDE), including demonstrations in Asuncion uniting workers from all over the country, and strong support from PSI, the parliament of Paraguay decided to postpone on Tuesday 18 June any decision on the regulatory system of electricity.
Public Services International applauds the valiant efforts of the Paraguayan union for their courageous and determined opposition to the misguided electricity privatisation programme.
