Buenos Aires Labor Minister: “I will negotiate with a gun to my neck”
March 10, 2013
Buenos Aires Labor Minister Oscar Cuartango admitted on Saturday “the threat of new crackdown launched by teachers unions will sit down and negotiate with a gun in the neck to the new round of wage negotiations scheduled for next Monday”.
“I have ordered a strike of 96 hours, I’ll sit down to negotiate with a gun to his neck, that is not the way to negotiate, it sounds as extortion”.
In a radio interview he added that: “This year there is a atypical teachers joint”.
“It’s not the first one, it’s the sixth under the management of Daniel Scioli. The other five were close, this is a very particular tension”.
