Gov’t to declare mandatory conciliation on UOM strike

The Metallurgical Workers' Union (UOM) went on a national strike today, paralizing steel companies, demanding a salary rise of 29.6% in line with the figure agreed in earlier negotiations.

Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich later confirmed the Ministry of Labour would order a compulsory conciliation period.

"The Ministry of Labour will decide to declare mandatory conciliation" on the dispute over salaries between UOM and six metallurgical chambers representing businesses in the sector, Capitanich said today during his briefing to the press.

Antonio Caló, secretary-general of the UOM and leader of the government-allied CGT umbrella union said the strike had been decided "due to the refusal of metallurgical companies belonging to the Techint group - led by Paolo Rocca - and Arcelor Mittal to negotiate wages according to the national agreement and workers' needs."
