The teamsters union has ratified the 48-hour strike after talks at the Labour Minister failed. The action plan was affecting the fuel delivery service with workers threatening to carry out another walkout next week if their salary demands are not met.

Truck drivers demand a wage hike of 42 percent, rejecting the 28 percent that business leaders offered to pay in three installments, also protesting against income tax which affects, union leaders say, 95 percent of the sector’s workers.

“We never had an answer. All the services are affected because 95 percent of truck drivers pay income tax. All activities might suffer walkouts,” Pablo Moyano, the deputy secretary of the teamsters union, told media.

Besides the fuel delivery service, there will be no trash collection either during the protest measure.

Meanwhile, union leaders and representatives of the sector’s companies will be resuming negotiations on Wednesday next week.

“We want the income tax projects to be addressed (in Congress), it is something that comes from the previous government with the CGT (labour confederation) launching five strikes because of that matter,” Moyano warned.

“There are projects (of law) that lawmakers have not addressed. They all lifted their hands to pay to vulture funds, but when they have to work for workers they all disappear. The Peronists, the Radicals and the PRO. No one does anything for workers, only lawmakers of the unions.”
