The Court ordered the City to convene a roundtable for the subway
August 9, 2012
Judge Patricia Lopez Vergara ordered the Undersecretary of Labor of the City of Buenos Aires call for a dialogue between subway workers and representatives of Metrovías to resolve the conflict that paralyzes the service for almost a week.
“I ordered the Undersecretary of Labor that as a negotiating table with representatives of subway workers and company Metrovías purposes it is a way to sit on both sides,” said the magistrate.
The owner of the Court of Buenos Aires in Administrative and Tax No. 6 stated that, by injunction, “I searched decompress within the jurisdiction of the city, chaos and the situation of tension in which the city lies.”
Lopez Vergara ordered “compliance with laws that are local, such as Law 265, which is the law governing the powers and authority of the Undersecretary of Labor of the city.”
As said it can not release an injunction against the strike, because “I can not order a cessation of the strike because it would not be in competition for anything a judge of the city.”
