Law 4016 – creating the National Direction of Post in Paraguay (DINACOPA) – was published in La Gaceta Oficial (The Official Gazette) on July 14.
The Union of Postal Workers of Paraguay (SINTRAPOP), affiliated to UNI, informed UNI Americas Post and Logistics, that Law 4016 – creating the National Direction of Post in Paraguay – has been enacted.
“This important aspiration of postal workers has come true after a 15 year struggle,” it was reported.
Now universal post will be regulated by an independent body according to the rules of the Universal Postal Union (UPU).
“UNI and UNI Americas Post and Logistics express gratitude towards all the affiliated organisations which unconditionally supported the call of SINTRAPOP so that the Head of State should enact this law. We give the workers of the Paraguayan Postal Service, our best wishes of success and hope that with this new legislation they will improve their work in favour of users and workers. We express our will to always be near our affiliates and we hope that SINTRAPOP will soon report us about new benefits for the workers of the sector they represent,” it was said.
