Teachers' union defiant despite BA injunction

UDOCBA Secretary-general Miguel Ángel Díaz has insisted that members of his union will not be returning to the classroom on Tuesday, in spite of a court order ruling the end of strike action for teachers in Buenos Aires province.

"Classes will not be starting on Tuesday. I am sure class will not start, some of our companions might go but key members [of the union] will not, you can not be forced back at gunpoint," Díaz fired in an interview held today with Nacional Rock.

"We will go to our assembly on Tuesday and we will speak out on the information we have," he added.

"If I have to betray my companions I will go home, I am not going to be scared by a judge. If I get scared by that, peronism has no use in this country."

Díaz saved his harshest words for Buenos Aires Ombudsman Carlos Bonicatto, who presented the injunction before courts in order to break a strike which has been running for 13 consecutive days.

"Bonicatto is incredible, who is this ombudsman? He is Scioli's. Who is he? The school's director-general? Kapanga Bonicatto," the union leader seethed, following the official's assertion that classes would be starting this week.
