Teachers go on national strike
Buenos Aires province teachers’ union ratified the 48-hours national strike scheduled for today and Wednesday to demand a wage hike above from the one offered by the provincial government ($2,800 pesos).
The measure was confirmed after a collective bargaining encounter held between the unions and the province’s government. According to a union source, their demand to increase the initial salary to $3,100 pesos was not accepted.
The negotiations will resume on Thursday, and the members of the union did not rule out the chance to apply new measures.
