Representatives of teachers' unions for the City of Buenos Aires have met once more with the City government, having rejected a salary increase of 25 percent for the coming year.

The educators have demanded a basic wage of no less than 5000 pesos, as well as a raise of 30 percent starting retroactively from February and made effective in the first quarter of the year, with a further clause guaranteeing a pay review in June.

After failing to reach an agreement, a recess was approved up to today in the City Ministry of Education.

Eduardo López, secretary-general of the Education Workers' Union, told Télam "with that proposal the starting salary would reach 5400 pesos only in August, when in other districts like Santa Fé, Córdoba or San Luis the minimum wage is over 6000 pesos."

"It is a shame that in the richest district in the country they are offering such a low raise compared to Córdoba or Santa Fe," López said, adding that in the meeting "it was very clear that even if we reach a salary agreement, we are not going to abandon the fight for the lack of school spaces."
