New strike halts customer service at public, private banks

Bank workers disrupted services in the City and the province of Buenos Aires today with a two-hour strike, protesting over salaries as well as the sacking of employees in the province of Tucumán.

Customer service in both public and private entities was halted from 1-3 pm.

Spokesman of the Banking Association union (BA) Eduardo Berrozpe had explained prior to industrial action that the measure would take place in the City and province and Buenos Aires from while in the rest of Argentina’s provinces the strike will depend on each bank’s public opening time.

Today marked the fourth time in two weeks that the BA launched a strike, as they continue to demand the reinstatement of workers who were fired from the Caja Popular bank, Tucumán, earlier this year.

“We can not allow the dismissal of 36 workers for union reasons in the Caja Popular of Tucumán, neither we can accept that the government of José Alperovich (of the province of Tucumán) flouts the resolution of the federal Labour Ministry to reinstate the workers and least of all that the police wounds 22 banks workers with their gunshots,” the union said in a statement accusing security forces in Tucumán of brutality during a protest against the dismissals.
