Workers' rights violations

Prosecution of union leaders for participating in strikes

In early June 2020, municipal workers demonstrating in the city of Mendoza, Argentina, for better salaries and working conditions were brutally attacked by provincial police who arrested over fifty protesters. As mobilisation continued, police repression increased, and on 5 June 2020, workers camping in the city centre were brutally dispersed by a hundred police officers. During this police intervention, several workers were injured and Sebastián Henríquez, general secretary of the Sindicato Unido de Trabajadores de la Educación (SUTE), was arrested.
