Flickers to dim out due to workers’ strike?

Empty screens over the next few days?

The Argentine Entertainment Workers’ Union (SUTEP) yesterday announced they will carry out wildcat strikes nationwide through Wednesday next week, thus affecting screenings during Children’s Day, celebrated tomorrow Sunday.

SUTEP Treasurer Daniel León yesterday said the decision came after reaching no agreement with businessmen to have the collective wage bargaining accord modified.

The cinema multiplexes affected by the strike are Hoyts Cinema, Cinemark, Village and Showcase. SUTEP authorities advised prospective viewers not to attend screenings because they could be interrupted to hold workers’ meetings and cinemas may be closed for such purposes.

The strike is scheduled to last through Wednesday all day, with a new meeting at the Labour Ministry the following day.

“We demand a serious collective wage bargaining contract to replace the labour flexibilization programme which dates back to the 1990s. Entertainment companies, though, insist on exploiting workers,” León concluded.
