"In the context of the crisis of the national universities, with the budgetary suspension established by the national government, the house of high studies of La Plata is not the exception."

From CONADU replied that "the Ministry of Education has just informed, granting a unilateral increase of 5.8%" on the basis of future agreements "which was already declared inadequate in the parity of Monday, August 13, because it consolidates the loss of the purchasing power of teachers and does not exceed the ceiling of 15% ".

" .
They also added that "the ministry's extravagant proposal with a lot of fanfare is that teachers accept that they only collect in September, an increase equal to the inflation that has already penalized us between March and June. under inflation that the government continues to deepen ".
For university teachers' unions, this unilateral decision was taken in view of the overwhelming plan of struggle of university professors, which forced the government to give up positions to satisfy the dissatisfaction that has arisen in the homes of higher education ".
