Argentina’s powerful Teamsters Union has threatened “a response” to the $809 million-peso (US$29.2 million) fine it received from the Labour Ministry on Thursday over its alleged failure to comply with a conciliation procedure.
“We will not put up with this austerity, so the government will just have to deal with our response”, Teamsters Union boss Pablo Moyano told the C5N television network.
“Of course we will go to court. It could take some time but we have declared a state of alert and protest. Between Monday and Tuesday, Teamsters leaders will meet across the country and we will surely decide on a response”, Moyano added.
