Haiti - FLASH : 3-day strike announced in public transport
Tuesday, July 25, 2023, at a press conference, leaders of transport unions, among others, the Trade Union Anti-Corruption Brigade, the Trade Union Force to Save Haiti, the United Front of Transporters and Workers of Haiti and the Association of Owners and Drivers Haitians (APCH) have announced a three-day public transport strike, from July 31 to August 2nd, to demand the government reduce the price of fuel by 40% after the fall in the price of a barrel of oil on the international market.

Let's recall that the Government announced on July 14, a slight drop in fuel prices: Gasoline goes from 570 Gourdes to 560 Gourdes per gallon (-1.75%), diesel from 670 to 620 Gourdes (-7.4%) and kerosene from 665 to 615 Gourdes (-7.51%) https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-40048-icihaiti-economy-slight-drop-in-fuel-prices-at-the-pump.html

The trade unionist Méhu Changeux, President of the Association of Haitian Owners and Drivers (APCH), continues to demand the strict application of the law of March 9, 1995 on the sale of fuel in Haiti. However, it should be noted that if this law, which is not applied, were, gasoline would sell for more (645 Gourdes) at the pump and diesel for less (550 Gourdes). According to a source close to the Association of Petroleum Distributors, by reducing the price of gasoline to 560 Gourdes, the State is already making a loss of 84.52 Gourdes...

This announced strike, in addition to greatly disturbing the population already affected by a multifaceted crisis and daily violence, coincides with the conduct of the single and permanent baccalaureate exams, which will not fail to affect a large number of the 111,498 students enrolled.
