BA teachers turn down 25% salary rise offer, confirm strike

Buenos Aires Province teachers unions have turned down the 25.5 percent salary rise offered by Daniel Scioli’s administration, also confirming a 72-hour strike beginning on March 5.

The Buenos Aires Government proposed a 14% rise to become effective in March, followed by another 5.4% rise in August and a final 5.7% rise in November, union representatives told NA news agency.

Teachers unions gathered in the “Frente Gremial Bonaerense” rejected the offer and insisted on a 35% rise.

"If there is not a much improved offer, we will continue with measures of force," SUTEBA secretary-general and Frente Gremial member Roberto Baradel affirmed on leaving today's meeting.

Salary negotiations will be resumed next Tuesday, one day before the 2014 school year start in Buenos Aires.
