Buenos Aires official: Classes will start Tuesday

The Ombudsman for the province of Buenos Aires, Carlos Bonicatto, has assured parents that classes delayed by strikes from teachers' unions would resume this week, following an injunction that ruled industrial measures from educators had to come to an end.

"We are taking every measure possible in order that all the teachers can be notified," the provincial official explained, referring to the news that courts had upheld an injunction tabled on Friday ordering an end to strikes.

Speaking to radio station Nacional Rock, Bonicatto was emphatic in setting a new starting date for classes.

"I am telling every single teacher in the province of Buenos Aires that Tuesday [March] 25 the province's educational system will start to function, the year will begin," he fired.

"The judgement will lift the strike and as a result classes have to begin, with no ill-effect on pay negotiations. On tuesday classes will start, whatever happens. This is not an administrative order, it is a sentence from a judge."

More than 3.5 million students have been affected by 13 consecutive strike days from teachers, who have maintained a fierce conflict with the administration of governor Daniel Scioli over salary rises for 2014.
