'Gov't has always been on workers' side' - Railway workers

“Although we have to continue discussing income tax and improving the life of pensioners, these are things that must be addressed through dialogue and not with a strike against a government that has always been on workers’ side,” head of the Railway Union Mario Rodríguez has affirmed.

Rodríguez-commanded workers will not be joining the walkout called by the anti-government splinters of the CGT.

“We are certain that the arrival of Minister (Florencio) Randazzo to the Interior and Transport Ministry has fueled a policy of reactivation and investment in the railway system. As railway workers we can not join a strike against this government, with freight and non-freight train lines being reactivated,” Rodríguez told reporters today and praised the labour policies carried out by the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration over the past decade “in favour of workers,” such as annual collective bargaining talks and agreements that “have improved” workers’ “quality of life.”

“Although we have to continue discussing income tax and improving the life of pensioners, these are things that must be addressed through dialogue and not with a strike against a government that has always been on workers’ side,” the Secretary General of the Railway Union affirmed.

Still, train services will be halted tomorrow since anti-government union La Fratenirdad along with unionized signalmen have confirmed their support to the walkout sponsored by CGT leaders Hugo Moyano and Luis Barrionuevo.
