The companies Montevideo Gas and Conectas are responsible for provision of gas.

The nationalization came after two-month-long workers’ struggle.

They carried out hunger strikes, demonstrations and finally workers control which was repressed by the police.

All workers dismissed, around 100, were rehired.

International solidarity also played a role in this workers’ victory.

CSP-Conlutas congratulates our Uruguayan brothers and sisters.
