“We consider that the claim corresponds, but We regret that it is done on a provincial route where we need tourists to enter so that other workers can work”. In this way, Governor Arabela Carreras expressed her solidarity with the claim of the workers of the Decavial company for wage breaches, but questioned the cut off of the access route to the Bariloche airport.
Carreras described the conflict as “strictly national” and highlighted the need for an urgent intervention by the National Ministry of Public Works. “We have permanent intervention from the Ministry of Labor and Public Works, although we must clarify that it is a national conflict. We are talking about workers from Route 23 who have problems with the Decavial company, ”he warned.
He assured that, during the visit of the Minister of Public Works of the Nation, Gabriel Katopodis, to Las Grutas he expressed concern about the situation of decavial workers. “He told us that the company has problems throughout the country, but that they were already intervening so that they comply with the obligations to the workers,” he explained.
He clarified that the company’s problem is not budgetary but is focused “on the administrative situation.” “Katopodis promised to intervene and we are in permanent contact with (Jorge) Stopiello. There has already been an offer from the company and we are waiting for the workers to consider it,” he said.
However, the leader of the Uocra Bariloche, Nicanor Spinoza, questioned that the company “offered to pay the debt in comfortable installments and without the increases agreed by parity«. «It is not enough for the workers to be paid on time; Less now that they haven’t been paid for a month, ”he said on the way to the airport and threatened to toughen the force if he didn’t get an answer in the next few hours.
