Mexico City /
As a result of covid-19, he died in Mexico City Mario Ross García, former leader of section 44 of the Union of Petroleum Workers of the Mexican Republic (STPRM).
According to relatives and close friends, the also social activist would have died for a pneumonia picture, derived from the coronavirus, at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday in the country’s capital.
On Facebook, Rocío García Gallegos, who said she was his relative, confirmed the death by publishing: “I know that God is great and puts us many tests, today we start the year with sad news. Uncle you anticipated us, rest in peace next to us from my aunt”.
Ross García sought to lead the Oil Workers Union of the Mexican Republic, after the resignation of Carlos Romero Deschamps, in November 2019. He assured that since December 2018 had been elected in a collegiate assembly by most sections of the oil union, but he was waiting for the Judicial Power to decide so that they would give him his note as general secretary of that union expression.
It was until December 19, 2019 that Mario Ross declared himself as general secretary of the trade union organization, after being favored with a federal protection to be able to receive, from the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare, the note taking.
Mario Ross passed away while continuing to seek justice for his son Mario Rubicel Ross, who disappeared on September 22, 2016.
Faced with the death of the former union leader, the State Council of NGOs has planned to pay tribute this Saturday, January 2, at 10:00 a.m. in the Carrizal subdivision, at 225 Pichucalco street.
