You are currently viewing Truckers’ strike in Chubut could affect fuel distribution

In the midst of the increase in oil prices at the international level, the Truckers’ Union began a 48-hour strike in Chubut to reject the decision of the oil companies to carry out transportation tasks outside the union agreement.

The force measure began at 6 this Monday and affects the distribution of fuel and the supply of pipes for oil wells in both Chubut and Santa Cruz.

The strike was confirmed by the general secretary of Truckers-Chubut, Jorge Taboada, who did not rule out that the conflict could last up to 72 hours and could be nationalized if a response to the claim was not found. Taboada explained that what is required is that the Convention (40/89) be respected.

For March 22 there is already a meeting scheduled in the City of Buenos Aires with all the unions that participate in the activity.

Taboada questioned the “arbitrary decisions of the operators when awarding work in the logistics part, because historically these jobs are for our sector.”

“Transport belongs to the trucking sector,” said the Truckers’ referent, who is part of the National Board of the union led by Hugo Moyano.

“We have to demand more labor sources. When the price of oil drops, they force us to fire people and now, we must demand that more teams come up,” Taboada said about the situation the sector is going through and lamented: “With YPF we would not have to have conflicts And we have them.”

“We have been doing this for 24 years, and it is not possible that they are unaware of our agreement,” warned the leader.
