University of Buenos Aires
teachers and students denounced the last 15 that more than 130 days ago that there is no gas. Lucas Tavolaro Ortiz, president of the Center for Exact and Natural Sciences students (Cecen), wondered if there was no gas in Pavilion 2 of Exactas and that both the Rector of the UBA and Metrogas and the government deafened the claim . The dean of that faculty, Juan Carlos Reboreda, told the representatives of teachers and students that science and faculty were in crisis.
In various national universities they try creative activities to protest in the context of active unemployment. For the professor Mónica Cragnolini, specialist in the work of Friedrich Nietzsche and regular professor of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Buenos Aires for decades, the city's police last Friday made a contraptive act to classify a class. dictate in Puán Street, for the faculty where he teaches. That is why there was an act of rejection today in the afternoon with lecturers and students from that university. Since that news was known, personalities of culture and education expressed their rejection, which they described as an act of intimidation. With this action, classes on the public road were multiplied: in the faculty of Psychology, Medicine and Social Sciences of the UBA, the monasteries took to the streets. On Friday the public lessons of the UBA are held at the Plaza de Mayo. Although unemployment was not respected in some educational faculties and students, as in the case of the UBA's School of Architecture and Urbanism, banners and banners with claims to defend public education were shown in all classrooms.
As part of the protests, teachers and students from the National University of General Sarmiento (UNGS) organized walks from the university headquarters to Lemos Railway Station. Similarly, this Friday, teachers and students from the National University of José C. Paz call to march to the station of José C. Paz. During the march they will talk to the neighbors and distribute leaflets in which the claims are made explicitly. Teachers and students from universities in the provinces, such as the National University of Jujuy and the National University of Tucumán, have heard their progress in squares, in public tents and on social networks. And via Twitter and Facebook, graduates from national universities of different races circulated testimonies in the first person with the hashtag # laEducaciónNoSeVendeSeDefiende, in which they told about their experience as students and teachers.
For the third consecutive week, teachers from 57 national universities struck a wage claim. They also ask the National State to send money that has been approved by the budget approved by the National Congress. Before 6 August, one of the two main federations of higher education, the National Confederation of University Teachers (Conadu), called a plebiscite to decide whether after the interruption of the winter break lessons would be resumed in the universities. The majority of teachers did not vote, in rejection of the 15% offer made by the Ministry of Education of the Nation, to pay in four parts. The trade union and its representatives requested a percentage proportional to annual inflation, estimated at 2018 by 30%. Both Conadu and Conadu Histórica, who make up 90% of the teachers of the 57 national universities, plan a march on 30 August to the Pizzurno Palace, the headquarters of the Ministry of Education of the Nation.
After the first week of unemployment, on Monday the 13th, a meeting was convened between representatives of various federations and officials of the secretariat of university policies, who were in charge of the accountant Danya Tavela. It was the first meeting between unionists and officials after three months of silence. In that meeting, where the guilds were asked to lift the strike, the Minister's offer did not differ so much from the already rejected proposal. They were offered the same 15% increase, this time to pay in three installments instead of four. From that day on, the Historical Conadu joined the teachers' strike.
Salary increase in droppers
"There were increases in food, prices, devaluation and any offer that does not match reality will be rejected again," he said.
THE NATION Sonia Yabcovski, General Secretary of Adiungs, who is part of the Conadu. Next Friday representatives of Conadu and Conadu Histórica meet again to determine the next steps. The claim of teachers is not just salary. They also require the government to make timely sales and the items approved in the budget approved for this year. According to a report from the National Interuniversity Council, no infrastructure project could be carried out in a national university. The National University of Río Cuarto (UNRC), like other houses of higher education, experienced problems in paying electricity bills. It was shown last week in a symbolic mass duo at the university.
The parity teacher in higher education won in February this year and the new parity must relate to the period from March of this year to March 2019. "Only unilaterally awarded 5% in the month of May It is clear: salaries are reduced, teachers defend our salary and also public, secular, free, quality university, we defend it as a right that must be guaranteed by the state, but the paradox is that that state attacks the Public University, just like the Science and Technology system, " said Rocco Carbone, a professor at UNGS and Conicet researcher.
THE NATION, the Secretary of University Policy indicated that "to order the statements", the answers would come from the press sector of his organism. From there it was indicated that the National Ministry of Education works every day to find solutions, at the same time they indicated that they could not resume dialogue with the trade unions while the strike lasted. They also reported that from August the government will add another 5.8% higher teachers' salaries because of the future agreement. With the allocated 5% in May, added to this new percentage and to 2.77% of the activation clause that was activated last February, the increase that will be seen in the liquidation of the salaries of August, a 13.5% achieve in what goes from the year. That index is still far from what teachers demand. From the Ministry of Education, they confirmed that the transfers of funds approved by the national budget had already been regularized, although they admitted that there was a period of five months' delay. These items were not adjusted for inflation. Finally, they suggested that an analysis of unemployment should be made by region, university, faculty and career, and it could not be said that the total of 57 scientific units were unemployed.
