National Gov't agrees 28.7% salary raise with teachers' unions

Labour Minister Carlos Tomada talks with union representatives during negotiations held today
The government has reached an agreement with representatives of federally-employed teachers, committing to wage increases of 28.7 percent to be paid over two installments, according to Argentina Teachers Union leader Sergio Romero.

The union chief further explained that the first raise would be seen in March's pay packet, with educators taking home 17 percent more. Those covered by today's accord would subsequently see a further increase of 10 percent occur in August.

"We have also managed to take out the presenteeism clause and that is a clear union victory," Romero affirmed, underlining that the new minimum wage for teachers will be 4,400 pesos.

The unionist pointed out that the agreement was reached "through negotiation," adding that "the government and the unions have shown the maturity needed to avoid any type of conflict."

CTERA leader Stella Maldonado further asserted that the pact also establishes a "salary monitor", to avoid the basic salary falling below national minimum wage levels.
