UTA Transport Union head Roberto Fernández confirmed a 24-hour strike for next Wednesday in short, medium and long distance buses, to demand a salary increase of over 30%.

"We have been demanding this for five months with no solution," Fernández said in an interview with Province Radio.

"Transport companies argue they have not reached an agreement with the government about the sector’s subsidies," the union leader said and complained about the workers' situation: "we are caught between two powers and we have nothing to do with [the negotiations]"

Fernández said the union represents 110,000 workers whose minimum wage is 8,900 pesos for jobs where they “risk their lives and those of the passengers”.
