After threatening a strike, the UTA agreed to an increase
Just over two weeks ago, the Automotive Tramway Union (UTA) reached an agreement with the Argentine Federation of Passenger Automotive Transporters (Fatap) and closed a semi-annual salary increase of 29.47%.
This was reported from the Ministry of Labor on their Twitter account, where they confirmed the information after negotiations with the leadership of the union that groups bus drivers, led by the leader Roberto Fernández.
As detailed, it is a salary increase that will materialize 10% in January, another 10% for March and the last 7% for May, which reaches short and medium distance drivers.
"The semi-annual cumulative reaches 29.47%," they published from the portfolio directed by Minister Raquel 'Kelly' Olmos.
He also indicated that a review of the clause was scheduled for next July.
For its part, the UTA reported in a statement that "the readjustment payment for the month of January will be made effective on February 23."
The agreement came hours after the union threatened to strike the service for a week, due to the lack of negotiations.
