De Vido urged Metrovías to negotiate parity with employees of Subway
Buenos Aires, May 16, 2012
Planning Minister Julio De Vido gave a press conference at the Ministry of Economy by Labor Minister Carlos Tomada and Transportation Secretary Alejandro Ramos.
“Since 79, the national state transfers the ownership of the underground to the city of Buenos Aires, so it can not be under any argument that the subways are not owned by the CABA. The domain is of CABA,” De Vido said.
The minister explained that Metrovias, the Roggio group, sent a letter to Macri, with a claim, “almost a lament and in one of the foundations says, ‘continuity of subway service is in serious danger.’”
“The note is a serious direct threat to users,” said De Vido.
He warned: “Through this medium we want to persuade Metrovías (group Roggio) as employers and solely responsible for their employees, go to the Ministry of Labour and agree on joint corresponding”.
