Teacher’s unions reached an agreement with the Government of Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires, March 13, 2012
Buenos Aires officials met today with representatives of the unions who represent the teachers of the province of Buenos Aires as part of the joint discussion that already lasted more than two weeks.
While there are no definitions, the Secretary General of SUTEBA, Roberto Baradel, confirmed today that the offer “achieved several points claimed by the unions”. Now, their acceptance or not depends on a plenary of delegates. The offer made in today proposed a minimum wage of 2900 pesos (3100 was claimed by the unions) with the benefit that they are completely blank for all categories, respecting the pay scale and an increase in 500 of the credit for retired teachers.
Baradel added that “they increased in 1000 million pesos the wage bill” designed to teacher salaries.
The proposal for the management of Daniel Scioli is 40 pesos higher than initially raised but does not reach the 3100 order by the teachers. If approved it will lift the strike planned for tomorrow.
