UTA Transport Union lifts bus strike after mandatory conciliation
The Labour Ministry headed by Carlos Tomada today ordered mandatory conciliation in response to the Argentine Transport Union (UTA), which had threatened to stop public bus service to demand wage rises.
Roberto Fernández, leader of that transport union assured the measure instructed by Tomada would be abided by his workers, and called on the public to “stay calm because the service will operate as normal.”
The mandatory conciliation was imposed for 15 days, during which the parties involved will seek agreement in a new round of salary talks.
