PUBLIC STATEMENT ---- A Arica community, our partners and colleagues and the union, to our beloved families, our class brothers who struggle every day to dignify their working conditions. Given our strike deposed on Thursday April 4, and for all that our union has been through, we stated: ---- 1. We present the community that the company Pioneer-Dupont Arica , which is part of the transnational integrated Dupont, last year contributed 20% of profits into the coffers of giant Dupont, wealth has come at the cost of selling our workforce, that sale has been characterized with: starvation wages, poor working conditions and union practices. For these shameful conditions, we decided together with our sisters and brothers of the union, starting this strike, this strike did not ask beyond just, do not ask beyond what it deserves our dignified employment status in this company.

2. We want you to be aware that this is the first union created in the history of the company worldwide. So this mobilization was the first experience of union struggle of our comrades. For this reason the company is initially developing mobilization and positioned in a very severe and uncompromising, because this attitude not only responds to a situation purely economic, but rather political, to stand as a colossus reaching business degree unzip any hint of trade union organization.

3. Already in the fourth week of mobilization workers never got to lower the arms and the effort it takes to fight at this stage of the year, a strike coming in March and debt payments for the useful and taken our children's school, we remain firm and standing, just by themselves, this fight is for the dignity of our families. However, we emphasize that this fight has given us a lot of learning, and the fact that we understand how valuable such as organized labor, and the unit in direct action for our rights makes the difference in the time to address collective bargaining. For it was on the basis of unemployment, making, of marches, of the hunger strike, the national media events such as disruption to Mass on Sunday March 31 in Santiago, which we formed as a solid and strong union.

4. For all this and after 21 days of mobilization the Company's Union-Arica PIONEER deposes his strike after bending his hand to the company, is that the small wins as a bonus to the agro-chemical applicators, a permit Administrative 5/2 day during the year, a Christmas party for our children, and adds the elusive bonus term conflict of $ 600,000, as we said last night, seems little but for us this has been a great achievement, it is now defend and fight for our dignity at work.

5. Finally thank each and everyone who supported us, especially social organizations who came to offer their support and solidarity as the Federation of Students of the UTA (FEUT), the port of Arica Sutrapeva union, union Singenta to the Methodist and Catholic church (Bishop Hector Vargas of Arica), the group "The Battle of the workers," the few media that supported us, people Azapa Valley, as well as the various political authorities of the city, etc. Also, send a fraternal greetings of solidarity to fellow class port of Mejillones, a salute to his legitimate half-hour stoppage by the collation and to improve their working conditions, we know they are not alone, they are all at port supporting such a worthy national mobilization. So we are left to keep fighting and unite all workers, we deliver the greatest goods of Chile, which is precisely not to Chileans or for those who live in our country, so that more strongly than ever we standing, and Tuesday April 9 walked to work, but this time more worthy than ever.

Never alone
