Teamsters will accept no salary hike under 30%

The teamsters’ union commanded by Hugo and Pablo Moyano launched a 24-hour strike across the country today’s early morning, demanding a salary hike that, they warned, “can not go under 30 percent.”

“We will not accept anything that goes under 30, 32 percent,” the union’s Press Secretary Hugo Pistone told reporters considering the impact of the protest action “prominent.”

Teamsters demand a 35-percent wage hike, the elimination of the income tax and “free” collective bargaining talks, accusing the government of setting limits to workers’ salary expectations.

“We might need to see which are the unions that are promoting the roof (salary limit) and that don’t defend workers’ salaries, especially the unions aligned with the government such as the UOM (metallurgical union). That of the palm oil workers was a fight of our brothers,” Pistone added saying the conflict in the palm oil sector could have been avoided, that it was a “whim” of Economy Minister Axel Kicillof.

Thousands of teamsters are expected to rally and come together at the Deportivo Español stadium at noon.

The strike will be affecting trash collecting services, as well as the transportation of fuel and products to supermarkets, threatening also ATM cash deliveries.
