Subway workers to go on strike
Subway union delegate Roberto Pianelli explained that Metrovías subway company “has no means to pay for the workers’ salaries, not to mention a wage hike, because they don’t have a feedback from the Buenos Aires City government either.”
Meanwhile, Labour Minister Carlos Tomada responded to the threats by saying the national government would not intervene.
“We are no intervening, there is still a direct negotiation to be carried out among the parts involved and, besides, it is a problem that falls into the hands of the Buenos Aires City government”, the Minister remarked.
