Subway union assures 'there's no risk of a strike'

The head of the subway workers union, Néstor Segovia, assured today that on Monday they are to free up the turnstiles at subway stations once more, “if the Judiciary fails to take action on the recent hike.”

Segovia said the protest will continue on Monday, if the Judiciary rejects taking action to change the 127% increase in subway fares, but at the same time assured that “there’s no risk of a strike” by workers.

Even still, during a radio interview the unionist sustained that “if the Judiciary is in favour of the hike there’s nothing that can be done, everything that could be done has been done. At the end of the day they are the ones that have the control.”

A multisectoral meeting was held by some 40 social, union and student organizations yesterday to discuss further action, where it was revealed that more that 100,000 signatures had been collected from passengers who were against the new subway fares. The union workers are to continue collecting signatures throughout the weekend.
