Bank workers launch strike to protest Alperovich's 'barbarity'

The Bank Association has called for a strike for Thursday, in a move that is expected to affect all operations in both public and private financial entities. The union has decided the force measure following violent incidents in the province of Tucumán where a group of unionized workers who had been fired were victims of police brutality.

The union’s Press Secretary Eduardo Berrozpe confirmed the decision, accusing Tucumán’s governor José Alperovich of “barbarity.”

“It seems that Governor Alperovich has more power than (federal) Labour Minister Carlos Tomada who ordered workers’ reinstatement,” Berrozpe told reporters this morning.

On May 13, a group of workers who had lost their jobs occupied the offices of the Caja Popular bank in Tucumán. The union claims protesters where violently evicted by the police.

“We can not bear Aperovich’s barbarity. We strike because no one gives us an answer and we can not tolerate violence,” the union’s secretary affirmed, explaining that on May 29 there will be “no customer service in any public or private entity.”
