Panama: worker shot dead, two wounded, in battle with company union

According to the global union federation for building workers (BWI), Osvaldo Lorenzo -- a union activist -- was shot and killed, and two other workers injured, in a confrontation between a company-controlled union and SUNTRACS, which is a real union. The BWI is calling for a full investigation and has sharply criticized the transnational corporation involved, which is notorious for violating workers rights elsewhere. It has launched an online campaign and I urge all of you to sign up today.
