Subway lines in Buenos Aires to stop working due to union protests

Buenos Aires, Dec 7 (Prensa Latina) Workers of all six subway lines in Buenos Aires said on Tuesday that as of next Thursday they will hold a protest due to the lack of responses regarding working conditions.

In a statement released on Twitter, the Subway and Premetro Workers’ Union Association, which groups workers from the sector, pointed out that they will stage the strike from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., local time, against the Metrovias company (now Emova) for refusing to hold dialogue.

On November 23, we asked the company for dialogue to discuss future working conditions in the post-pandemic stage. Six days later we reiterated the request in the labor vice-departmental office of the Government in the capital. No answer, the text read.

In recent days, after heavy rains in the capital, the workers of Buenos Aires subway denounced, among other things, the lack of electricity for traction and signal systems in several sections and failures in the signal system.
