Bus drivers launch strike over 'crime,' most BA services halted

The UTA transport union has launched a 12-hour strike action affecting all bus services in the province of Buenos Aires, following the crime of a driver in the provincial locality of Villa Celina. Commuters in the City will also be affected since most lines go across Argentina’s capital.

The walkout started today at noon and will last till midnight. UTA Secretary General Roberto Fernández told reporters that most bus services “will be halted.”

A 22-year-old driver died from a gunshot this week when a group of criminals got on his bus seeking to rob commuters. A shooting between the gang and a police officer who was travelling in the bus resulted in the killing of the young man.

“We can no longer bear these criminal events. We don’t stand crime anymore. Authorities receive us but they do nothing about it,” UTA spokesman Mario Calegari said in statements to a radio station earlier today.
