Fuel dealers' workers lift Easter weekend strike after 33% salary hike agreement

Fuel Dealers Federation (FOESGRA in Spanish) members lifted the strike they were going to hold on Easter weekend after they agreed to a 33 percent salary hike.

Three of the four fuel dealers chambers, which represent 96 percent of the petrol station workers of all the country, signed the agreement which states that the basic salary of a worker will go from $2600 to $3700 and with additional payments, the salary will amount a total of $4200 per month.

The strike lift comes after Fuel Dealers Federation delegates met with Labour Ministry officials and fuel businessmen. The agreement will be valid for one year.

The unionists had warned that if they could make a deal with the Labour Ministry the would go on a 48 hour strike later in the week, thus complicating the thousands of people expected to travel along the country due to the Easter holiday.

The strike had been announced last week after the Interior Fuel Dealers Chambers refused to accept a salary increase offer that was agreed between fuel dealers’ workers and FOESGRA.
