BA teachers ask national government to intervene in wage dispute

"The minister should be talking with the Governor now and telling him to settle this conflict,” Roberto Baradel, the head of SUTEBA teachers’ union stressed today after Education Minister Alberto Sileoni suggested this morning that the three-month-old dispute between the Scioli administration and the province teachers should be solved by both parts without the government meddling.

In statements to a radio station, Education Minister Alberto Sileoni warned that 40 percent of the investment the national government makes in education goes to the Buenos Aires province administration. “We are not unconcerned but the dispute must be solved by them,” Sileoni stressed.

Buenos Aires province teachers today resumed a 48-hour national strike after negotiations failed to reach a wage agreement with the province government.

The teachers were going forward with the measure despite the government’s warning that pay will be docked for the hours not worked.
