As expected, a strike on all six lines of the Subte network began today at 11am, and will last until 4pm this afternoon.
Thousands of commuters were affected by the move, finding alternative ways to travel the capital at peak time.
Today’s strike comes as part of a week of action against the transport company. Both yesterday and on Tuesday, passengers travelled free of charge between 9 and 11am.
Subte workers, members of the Subway Workers’ Union, are demanding that the Metrovías company begin collective wage bargaining talks, with the objective of a 28% increase, as well as more investment in order to improve the service.
