As of this Thursday at 4:00 p.m., a national collective strike is in force at the national level. Prior to this measure, the Secretary of Transportation of the Municipality of Córdoba, Marcelo Rodío, had confirmed that the city of Córdoba would not be affected.

In the first instance, this strike was going to take place on Friday the 7th from 00:00 and would affect the short and medium distance lines. Faced with uncertainty, Rhodium assured to Channel C Argentina that “It will not be done in Córdoba, we have already arranged and 15 days ago we signed a commitment document for which we have no problem.”

After weeks of negotiations between the union, the companies and the Government, a sector of the workers of the UTA (Unión Tranviarios Automotor) decided to bring forward the national collective strike initially scheduled for midnight. The measure of force began at 4:00 p.m. Thursday.

The workers argue that the lack of salary adjustment since January, which should be at least $400,000, has motivated this measure. Besides, They demand the payment of the salary differences corresponding to the months of January to June and their impact on the Christmas bonus. They claim to have lost more than two full salaries so far this year.

In the Metropolitan Area of ​​Buenos Aires (AMBA), the group DOTAowner of 180 bus lines, is affected by the strike. Among the affected lines are 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 28, 31, 44, 50, 51, 56, 57, 74, 76, 79, 84 , 91, 99, 101, 106, 107, 108, 117, 130, 135, 146, 150, 161, 164, 168, 177, 188, 256, 263, 271, 299, 370, 384, 385, 388, 4 03 , 405, 421, 429, 435, 503, 514, 520 and 570.

It should be noted that this advance of the collective strike occurs shortly after the UTA announced a total cut in service on the lines of the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area (AMBA) for Friday. Unlike previous occasions, this strike cannot be deactivated by the Government through mandatory conciliation.
