Police strikes end in Neuquén, Santa Fe following agreements

A regiment of Border Police arrive in Rosario during a strike from regular police officers in Santa Fe province, which ended yesterday evening
Politicians in Neuquén and Santa Fe have acted to end strike action from the provinces' police forces, while protests continue in several other regions of Argentina as security forces demand a better economic deal.

Claudio Aroca, spokesman for striking policemen in Neuquén, announced this morning that an "agreement in principle" had been struck with governor Jorge Sapag.

"An agreement was reached in the early hours of today and I want to highlight the great work done by the governor in finding a solution and ending this issue in a peaceful manner," Aroca stated in an interview.

"The conflict is 89 percent solved. When we have all the papers in hand and our companions give us their consent, we will have it 100 percent resolved," added the spokesman, who revealed that officers would now receive a basic salary of at least 10,000 pesos a month.

Disputes were also ended in Santa Fe, San Juan and Catamarca, while protests continued in the province of Rio Negro.

In Santa Fe, governor Antonio Bonfatti announced yesterday evening, following the dispatch of more than 2000 border guards to the province, that a deal had been struck.

Bonfatti revealed that a round-table discussion would be opened in February to negotiate pay rises, while extra incentive and benefits were conceded to striking officers; who, as the governor asserted, "are carrying out their duties as normal."
