The head of La Fraternidad train drivers union Omar Maturano held a press conference and responded to the government’s accusations over yesterday’s sudden walkout: “We did nothing illegal,” he warned.

“If we don’t get paid as the law establishes, we reduce work ruties,” Maturano told reporters as he explained that yesterday’s unexpected move “was not a strike” but only a "reduction of duties with workers remaining at their posts".

The head of La Fraternindad pointed out the union warned the government that companies were failing to pay the mid year bonus. “We represent workers; we did nothing illegal,” he affirmed.

When asked about the statements by Interior and Transport Minister Florencio Randazzo alluding to the union’s rejection to have cameras installed inside drivers’ cabins, Maturano responded the union “wants” even “more cameras to show the true responsible of train accidents.”

Regarding the violent events that unfolded at the Constitución train station yesterday's when groups protested the lack of rail service, Maturano said La Fraternidad "holds no one responsible for the incidents."
