The Rail Automobile Union (UTA in Spanish) has warned it would launch a nationwide intermittent strike action as for next week if salary negotiations fail affecting short, middle and long distance passengers.

According to UTA’s press secretary Mario Calegari, walkouts will be decided on Tuesday when the mandatory conciliation expires. If workers have no official response to the 23 per cent salary hike demand, they will paralyze transport “progressively” in 4-6 hour strikes. Calegary told reporters of a local radio station that salary negotiations for bus drivers date back to January.

Meanwhile, head of UTA Roberto Fernández pointed out that sector’s business leaders allege that government’s subsidies “are not enough” to reach drivers’ wage expectations.

“The UTA has always opposed to subsidies because they only serve for emergencies but they are detrimental in time,” Fernández said and added that salaries have been “dilapidated” by inflation.
