The National government guaranteed that, through the intervention of the Ministry of Labor, it will continue to mediate in the conflict unleashed between the tire companies and the unions in that sector and made a call to “good sense” of both parties for “reach an agreement as quickly as possible”.
“They have to reach an agreement and we cannot affect the operation of the companies or the rights of the workers”spokeswoman Gabriela Cerruti pointed out when referring to the conflict that in the last hours paralyzed production in the main tire factories, but which started five months ago.
For now, the official pointed out, the position of the administration of the Front of All will be that of encourage meetings between both parties and seek “the best possible agreement” for the conflict to unravel. For this, tomorrow will take place the 35th meeting between Sutna trade unionists and representatives of Bridgestone, Pirelli and FATE in the ministry led by Claudio Moroni.
Faced with this event, the Casa Rosada made its position clear: “We want workers to have all the salary increase they can get and the rights they have to have”said the spokeswoman.
However, he made it clear that for this to be possible “There has to be a space for good sense and for carrying out measures” in such a way that the lack of tires “does not affect industries or daily life”.
“They have to get to a reasonable agreement”, Cerruti insisted during an interview on Radio 10 where he clarified that the discussion in the sector “is not only about the salary issue but it is much broader”.
As it transpired from the labor portfolio, the focus of the conflict is raised in the union request for “Make effective by companies the payment of 200 percent on overtime, which is paid 100 percent at present and which corresponds to weekends, when they exceed 40 hours per week”sources assured Page 12.
Against this counterpoint, the position of the national Executive is “to intervene as it always did” but in favor of dialogue and a consensus solution on both sides.
“The tire industry is transversal to the economic growth of the country” and if it is paralyzed “it affects several sectors, because not only the private purchase of tires is paralyzed but supplies for transport” in general, the spokeswoman pointed out.
