Employees at the Péligre hydroelectric power plant that had been on strike for five months’ worth of unpaid salary arrears have concluded their strike after 25 days of a blackout.

Employees reached an agreement with the Minister of Public Works, who agreed to pay the first two months’ salary arrears immediately and the remaining three months by the end of May 2023, according to Pierre Michel Félix, vice president of the Federation of Workers’ Unions of l’Électricité d’Haiti (EDH).

Following this arrangement, the Péligre power plant has resumed operations, and since Friday afternoon, the distribution of electricity has gradually been restored in a number of areas within the metropolitan area, including Delmas and Port au Prince.
