BA Gov't order new talks as teachers' strike ready to enter 14th day

The Buenos Aires provincial government has called on teachers' unions to resume salary negotiations on Wednesday in order to find a solution to the current stand-off, while educators refuse to comply with an injunction stopping strike action and prepare for their 14th day out of the classroom.

The administration headed by Daniel Scioli will meet with union heads on Wednesday morning at 10 am, in the headquarters of the province's Labor Ministry. According to an official statement, the invitation was extended "following the ruling of judge [Francisco Terrier to continue negotiations with the sector."

The missive also urged unionists to "adopt immediately the same attitude of compliance with the court measure and start to give classes, so that millions of students in our province can go back to school."

Despite government efforts at restarting negotiations, however, the district's principal teaching unions confirmed that the strike would tomorrow be upheld for a 14th consecutive day.

SUTEBA secretary María Laura Torre assured that action would continue and questioned the court ruling that ordered the end of the strike; sustaining that the judgement "compromises the right to strike."
