The Association speaks out against these shots held by the teachers’ union, in the face of the demand for payments, because with this it is already 59 the days that the railway track has been closed so far this year; this time at the height of Macaw, municipality of Lázaro Cárdenas.
Carlos Enríquez Barajas President of AIEMAC, called on the State Government and CNTE to start the negotiating table, reach consensus and avoid damage and affectation to third parties. «We invite the Government of Michoacán and the teachers’ union to solve this problem in depth and to urgently resolve it through diplomatic channels and dialogue,» the representative of AIEMAC said.
