Teachers urged to 'comply with mandatory conciliation,' lift protest 'imminently'
Unionized teachers setting a strike over salary must abide by the mandatory conciliation issued by the Labour Ministry and lift their protest action, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich affirmed and ratified wage negotiations will continue next week.
On Wednesday 12, government officials and unions will be meeting again in a second round of salary talks, following the failure of previous negotiations that resulted in a 48-hour strike affecting 19 provinces in the country since yesterday.
During his daily brief to the press, the head of ministers urged the largest education union, the CTERA, to comply with the mandatory resolution launched by the Labour Ministry and end “imminently” the walkout that halted the beginning of the school year that was expected to start yesterday.
