Panama: Strike scheduled in Colón February 3-4

Unions call for strike in Colón on February 3-4; transportation disruptions expected



The Alliance Movement Just Cause has called for a strike in Colón from Monday, February 3, to Tuesday, February 4, likely to call for unemployment rights or employment opportunities.

Participants have called for the closure of 62 areas and corridors across Colon, therefore likely to prompt significant transportation disruptions throughout the province on Monday and Tuesday. The government has asked for no violence or challenge to normal operations. A heightened security presence is likely.  


Individuals in Colón are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, monitor the situation, allow ample travel time, and obey instructions issued by the local authorities.
