Quilmes mayor strikes deal with Moyano over garbage collection dispute

Quilmes mayor Francisco “Barba” Gutiérrez confirmed today an agreement has been reached with trade union heavyweight and CGT Azopardo leader Hugo Moyano in the dispute over the termination of the municipality contract with waste management company Covelia.

“The municipality is now in charge of waste management,” the Kirchnerite mayor said today during an interview with Radio América and explained that the local government allowed former Covelia workers to keep their jobs “maintaining seniority vacation benefits and an equivalent salary or one similar to truck drivers minimum wage”.

But workers are not automatically to be employed by the government. "We can’t force anyone to join the municipality staff," Gutiérrez said and added that each worker has to “decide whether he wants to stay”

The mayor stated that Covelia "has to pay 100% of the workers’ compensations" and explained that next month’s salaries will depend on that payment.

He also pointed out that state control over the company will bring savings of up to 30% and pledged to improve the service.
