Secretary General of the UTA transport union Roberto Fernández has ratified the sector’s decision to strike on Tuesday 31, warning the only thing that could make workers go back on the protest action was a government decision to change Argentina’s income tax scheme.

“The income tax index has to be changed,” Fernández told reporters this morning adding that the walkout was not a "last-minute" decision but that unionized workers have been calling the government’s attention over the past "40 days."

“It is never late to reach an agreement. We are not trying to defy the government because workers voted for this government and it will finish its term in office by the end of the year,” the union leader affirmed pointing out they were seeking to “make (the Cristina Fernández de Kirhcner administration) understand that it has to sit in the table to understand inflation goes through all the situations.”

“If they don’t listen to us, we have to take these positions, because we represent workers.”

Transport workers will be holding a conference today at 7pm once a plenary of the sector’s unions ends to brief the press on next week’s protest action.
