BA province government calls teachers for talks in 'new effort'

Buenos Aires province Labour Minister Oscar Cuartango (L), Cabinet Chief Alberto Pérez (C) and Education and Schools Director General Nora De Lucía hold a press conference following salary talks with teachers in the City of La Plata.

The Daniel Scioli administration is determined to make a “new effort” to settle the 16-day dispute with Buenos Aires province teachers and call unions today for a new meetinng, Scioli’s cabinet Chief Albero Pérez – who will be personally heading the talks -, has announced.

In statements to media, Pérez considered teachers’ ratification of their strike accounts for an “inflexibility” that goes “beyond comprehension.”

“We have kept dialogue open and improved the salary offer three times but they continue with the walkout indefinitely,” the official said.

In a similar tone, BA province Labour Minister Oscar Cuartango considered unionized teachers were showing an “absolute intransigence.”

“This is no negotiation, this is an imposition. We make our best possible offer considering the province’s payment possibilities and we find an absolute intransigence and hardness with force measures that have no comparison,” Cuartango stated.

On Wednesday, education unions and provincial authorities gathered seeking to settle the salary conflict but negotiations failed with workers' leaders ratifying teachers will continue with their strike “indefinitely” as long as the Daniel Scioli administration does not improve its salary offer of 30.9 percent.
