On his way back from the International Labour Organisation Conference, Orlando Chirino, National Coordinator of Venezuela's National Workers Union (UNT) will be speaking at a meeting in London.
The UNT was founded in August 2003 as the response of democratic trade unionists in Venezuela to the fact that the unelected and illegitimate leadership of the CTV had supported and participated in the military coup in April 2002 and the bosses lock out in December 2002.
The UNT has now became the main trade union organisation in Venezuela and is actively participating in the struggle for workers' control and co-management that is taking place in state owned companies like Alcasa and Cadafe and recently nationalised ones like Venepal and CNV.
With decades of experience in the trade union movement, especially in the hard struggles of the textile workers, Chirino became one of the main trade union leaders in the industrial state of Carabobo, participated in the formation of more than 80 different unions and was a member of the regional trade union centre Fetracarabobo. He played a key role in the struggle against the coup in April 2002, and the bosses lock out of December 2002. He lead the foundation of the UNT in his capacity as a leader of the Bolivarian Workers' Force.

An interview with ORLANDO CHIRINO
ORLANDO CHIRINO is a member of the national coordinating committee of the National Union of Workers (UNT) of Venezuela, the leading union federation in the country formed as an alternative to the corrupt Workers' Confederation of Venezuela (CTV).Currently a member of the oil workers union, Chirino has been a long-time leading trade unionist in Venezuela.He is also a member of the organizing committee of the Party of Revolution and Socialism (PRS), formed in 2005.
...
In the interview, Chirino describes the origin and makeup of the UNT, its relationship to the Hugo Chávez government, its position on sharing management responsibility between workers and management (cogestión) and workers' self-management (autogestión) that has taken root in several Venezuelan workplaces since the 2003 defeat of the bosses' strike against the oil industry.At the time, oil workers took over key production and transportation facilities and assured the industry would not shut down.After that experience, a debate inside the Venezuelan workers' movement about the possibilities of cogestión and autogestión has flourished.
As a leading socialist in Venezuela, Chirino also speaks about the prospects for building a revolutionary party to fight for socialism in Venezuela.As Chirino puts it in this interview, he and other leaders of the PRS-which groups together several currents from Trotskyism to militant trade unionism-consider the party to be a vehicle for bringing together militants who can launch a revolutionary party in the future.
