The government closed in 22% increase in teacher salaries; the unions signed disagree
February 16, 2013
The government closed Friday unilaterally an increase in teacher salaries of 22 percent over the base, but staggered into three sections, the first 16% from March to August.
This was confirmed by SADOP union general secretary Mario Almirón, who lamented that the government has taken this decision, which he described as a “gesture of insensitivity to workers earning 2,800 pesos each.”
The unions signed disagree and teachers convened a meeting for this week.
The national administration closed for second consecutive year the teachers wage increase unilaterally, after giving a staged increase in three tranches, the first of 16% through August, the second until November of 19% cumulative, and the third between December and March 2014, to round a 22 percent salary increase.
