The executive committee Association of Subte and Premetro Workers (AGTSyP), promised today there will be no stop in traffic tomorrow, but warns for disruptions this week due to a planned strike.
The workers claim “a salary increase of 28% and an improved escalating increase for long-term employees: all retrospective to last March, when the joint negotiations were successful,” said the Subte delegates to justify “a strike during this week.”
The possibility of the strike was announced on Thursday by the general secretary of the AGTSyP, Roberto Pianelli, who was frustrated after a meeting with the company Metrovías during joint negotiations.
The strike will be definite if the upcoming meeting and continued negotiations tomorrow with the Buenos Aires’ Labour Undersecretary result unsuccessful for the workers. “It would mean another stop of parts of, or even all subway lines until an agreement has been reached,” the delegates announced. The last Subte union strike resulted in a 10-day paralysation of the city in August earlier this year.
