Abstract

The process of electricity privatisation and liberalisation in Latin America has led to loss of jobs, insecurity of employment, and worse conditions for electricity workers. Outsourcing has been a major problem. It has also contributed to a number of social and economic problems, including problems of price levels, reliability, and government guarantees.
