Hundreds of workers picket offices of Dominican Republic big business

Santo Domingo.- Hundreds of workers protested Monday morning in front of the headquarters of the country’s major business organization (CONEP), against an announced amendment to the labor code.

The workers grouped in the national unions CENUS, CASC and the CNTD also demand the preservation of the Dominican Social Insurance Institute (IDSS).

Chanting “respect for the labor code” the protesters called for a meeting of the National Wage Committee for June.

The CONEP has been urging an amendment to the Labor Code, especially the elimination of the Severance Pay, which business leaders say hurts competitiveness.
