Luis Primo is a member of the Expanded National Coordinating Committee of the UNT, and Regional UNT Coordinator for Caracas-Miranda. He was also General Secretary of the Caracas Metro Workers' Union (SINTRAMECA) from 1990 to 1997.

His visit is the first major West Coast tour of a leader of the Venezuelan UNT. We hope it will be the first of many exchanges between Venezuelan and American trade unionists. To make this possible, the Hands Off Venezuela Campaign has launched a fund raising drive to cover the many expenses of the tour. All donations are tax-deductible. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and can be sent to:

HOV
4579 18th St.
San Francisco, CA 94114
