Bus companies to strike if fuel shortage continues
The committee of the bus companies of Buenos Aires City and Greater Buenos Aires warned that “several bus services had to reduce their frequencies, and could lead to a total strike due to the constant inconvenient with the fuel distribution.”
The committee also warned that there were also problems with the “security of the bus drivers who had to reduce the frequency of the service.”
The companies anticipated that if the shortage continues “it will lead to the reduction of the normal frequency or even to the total standstill.”
In a communiqué, they called for the national authorities and the oil refineries to give the bus companies the priority to receive the fuel.
