Argentina Transit Union to Strike over Arrests of Members

BUENOS AIRES – Labor unions representing employees of the Buenos Aires metro announced that they would organize a strike because of the arrests of several of their members on Tuesday during a demonstration to demand progress in wage negotiations with the local government.

The arrests took place at the metro Line H terminal, where workers were staging their protest by blocking the tracks.

By 2 pm, the number of arrests had risen to 16, including Nestor Segovia, a labor union leader.

The protest was organized by the AGTSyP union, which had called on workers to stop the trains on three different segments of the metro system to express their rejection of the latest round of wage negotiations.

The police action at the Line H station, however, led to clashes between cops and workers and expanded the protests to the rest of the metro lines, the AGTSyP’s Enrique Rositto said.

“We are 200 workers who are not going to give up our jobs and who want to continue wage negotiations,” Segovia told reporters a few hours before his arrest.
