The Steering Committe of the Federation of Energy Workers of the Argentine Republic (FeTERA), informs its affiliated organizations and workers of its decision to participate and call a 36-hour strike that will begin on Monday, September 24, starting at 12:00 noon and will end on Tuesday 25 at 24:00 hs.
The stoppage will be technical, administrative and manual, without affecting the essential guard duties.
Workers in the maintenance sectors will not carry out scheduled tasks and only emergencies authorized with the intervention of trade union organizations will be addressed.
The affected sectors in public services will perform normal and customary tasks, with minimum guard duties.
We are suffering a strong offensive of capital against labor, natural resources and society as a whole, which is expressed as a furious attack on labor and union rights. This situation has been aggravated situation in our country since the assumption of Mauricio Macri’s government in December 2015 and even more with the agreement signed with the IMF for three years since June 2018.
The government’s political initiative is aimed at a deep economic adjustment against workers’ income and rights, and a reactionary restructuring of labor relations and conditions, focused especially in the search of regressive labor and social security reforms.
