60 bus line strike lifted, service resumed

After a day of protests that included staging a roadblock on the Pan-American Highway, drivers from the 60 bus line finally lifted their strike after midnight. They protests were sparked by demands that the Monsa transportation company paid their salaries in due form.

Earlier, the drivers had staged a roadblock on the 42nd kilometre of the Pan-American highway, in the Greater Buenos Aires area of Pilar as part of their strike.

The conflict began when Monsa failed to pay salaries in due time, which prompted workers to go on strike on Wednesday.

“Our problem with Monsa lies not only in the way they pay vacations, but also on the fact that they owe us a lot of payments. We believe the company wants to wear the relationship between delegates and take away our credibility in front of people. That is why we say Monsa is trying to create an environment of uncertainty,” Simoneta stated earlier.

Tigre Mayor Sergio Massa said that “the strike was unnecessary, because 250,000 people can’t be held hostage in a fight between workers and the company. Monsa should reflect on its relationship with the internal union committee. But workers should understand that they are harming other workers with the strike and the roadblock.”
