labor discontent at Venezuela’s VTV?

October 29, 2010

The following is from a article by James Suggett that discusses union agitation for worker self-management in Venezuela:

…workers at the state television station VTV called on the government to fire the station’s vice president, Jose Miguel Avendaño, and human relations manager, William Fernández, for alleged “management terrorism.”

Last week, Igor Alcalá, general secretary of the Union Movement of Organized Audiovisual Media Workers (MOTORMAV), said that the VTV management’s infractions included unjust firings, the non-renewal of the workers’ collective contract, interference in union autonomy, and non-responsiveness to union demands.

That’s a juicy tidbit that brings up more questions than answers. There’s no source and it’s the first I’ve heard, but I’ll have a look around and report back if I find anything. Please post any related information below.
