Subway C line resumes service after five-hour strike
Outsourced security staff from the Metrovías subway company, who had set up a roadblock on the tracks between the Av. de Mayo and Diagonal Norte stations, decided to end their protest after a five-hour strike and allowed the C Line to resume service.
The C Line was interrupted for over five hours, since “trains couldn’t advance due to the security personnel’s protest,” a Metrovías spokesman said.
The protesters demand to be made a part of the collective bargaining negotiations, the spokesman explained, adding that the subway employees’ collective bargaining does not cover the subway’s security staff.
