On this occasion, the government of María Eugenia Vidal offered them an increase of 19% plus a further 1.7% didactic material until September. Since October they have proposed to renegotiate.
"So the starting salary of an incoming teacher will rise from $ 12,500 to $ 15,085, register a total increase of 20.7% and the average salary will rise from $ 24,659 to $ 29,659, accumulating a 20.3% increase," they argued from the government from Buenos Aires.
As expected Infobae, there will be more measures after a new failed negotiation. In a statement signed by the five trade unions – SUTEBA, FEB, UDOCBA, AMET and SADOP – they say: "The proposal was rejected because it does not result in a real salary increase and does not provide for the application of the trigger clause, a question that from the beginning is presented from the negotiations and that special attention is given in the light of the growing inflation that is being released in our country ".
In this way, the strike of 72 hours that had been suspended due to mandatory mediation will be resumed. On Wednesday there will be a mobilization.
A month ago, the Labor Department of Buenos Aires ordered compulsory mediation after the announcement of a 72-hour strike that would have made it impossible to restart classes after the winter holidays.
The only union that did not comply with the mediation was SUTEBA, led by Roberto Baradel, backed by a last-minute national strike launched by CTERA, to which it belongs. By desacato, the government of Buenos Aires imposed a fine of 659 million pesos on him, which stopped the Court of Work N ° 3 of the Silver on Tuesday by considering that the provincial mediation was not violated.
Baradel celebrated the statement and said that "Buenos Aires Justice put a brake on authoritarianism and the illegality with which the Minister of Labor of the province of Buenos Aires, Marcelo Villegas, is confronted."
On the other hand, the government of Buenos Aires has announced that it will challenge the failure. "It is a clear interference of the Justice that does not respect the balance between the powers and reinterprets those laws and confuses the effects and competences, not only in clear agreement with the regulations, but also by violating the power relations and influencing the Republican system, "they said.
Up to now, 14 days were unemployed in the province. With the three days of strike more already announced will arrive 17, the same number of last year.
Meanwhile, the Vidal government expected it to make a new increase due to future agreements. "In September, the sixth advance will be paid, which will be 19% for the month of August and 20.7% with the didactic material," they said.
