Bank workers go on two-hour strike today

The Banking Association called for a 2-hour national strike to repudiate the repression against banking workers in Tucumán.

“There is State terrorism in Tucumán,” the Banking Association Press Secretary Eduardo Berrozpe said and explained that several workers have been shot while protesting for layoffs in the sector. In that province, the strike will go on for 48 hours.

“Do we need to wait until there are deads?” he asked, rethorically and quickly added: “No. That’s why we go on national strike tomorrow”

According to the Association’s website, the conflict began when workers that had been laid off from Tucuman’s Caja Popular de Ahorros were ambushed and brutally beaten by the institution’s security staff while they were delivering flyers demanding their return to work.

Berrozpe said that the strike is not related to anti-government CGT’s protest at Plaza de Mayo and that it is directly addressed to Tucumán province governor José Alperovich, who he said “answered to the banker’s demands with bullets”.

“Alperovich fired the bullets in contradiction with the government’s Human Rights policy. That is why we have no other choice but to go on strike against the brutal repression against the laid off bankers in Tucumán,” he said during an interview with FM Nacional Rock Radio.
