Chetumal, Q.R. — Unionized workers from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) in Quintana Roo began a strike Monday. The strike, they say, will likely continue until Thursday.
The workers are demanding that the General Directorate comply with an agreement that was signed in 2021. Workers say the agreement was for the improvement of working conditions as well as the delivery of new work uniforms and proper training among other specifications.
INAH workers from across the country are participaing in the strike which began Monday. More than 3,000 workers across Mexico have stopped work in protest of the broken agreement. In the state of Quintana Roo, approximately 100 INAH employees are refusing to work.
Union delegate, José Palma Correa, said that the strike will continue until Thursday, during which time they will continue to demonstrate outside the INAH office of Chetumal.
