Colombia's Fenoco workers demand higher pay

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Workers at Colombia's main coal railway Fenoco, which transports about half of the country's coal exports, are negotiating with the company for better pay and improved benefits, their main union said on Tuesday.

The two sides have been holding talks since late August, said Felix Herrera, president of the Sintraime union.

Herrera said the workers were seeking a 15 percent increase in pay while the company was offering a raise equal to the inflation rate, which he said had been the standard increase for Fenoco employees for several years.
