The workers union, Supara, decided last week it would carry out a strike. Supara believes customs workers have been unfairly excluded from the Federal Administration of Public Revenue’s (AFIA) salary increases, which were given to other public sector workers. The union blamed the country’s Ministry of Economy for not authorizing the wage boost.
Our local partners have informed us that the Argentinean Customs workers will go on strike for 3 consecutive days beginning tomorrow, July 10th, with a possible indefinite extension until an agreement is reached with the government regarding salary improvements.
Please note that the strike will affect all the Customs activities at ports, international borders, and airports.
RCL Agencies will continue to keep you updated on the impact of the strike and report further updates once available.
