Wednesday, June 8, 2011

IBM technicians in Argentina belonging to the Cepetel workers union have decided to join a 24-hour national strike in demand for a salary raise and recognition for extra working hours, local newspaper La Voz said.

The workers had joined the Argentine central workers union (CTA) strike.

"A year ago we told the company to come and talk about the employees' salary situation, but we never got an answer from them," said Cepetel representative Ricardo Puerta.

The IMB employees taking part in the strike are in charge of maintaining the cash dispenser machines in Córdoba province.

Regarding this matter, the company said at a press event in Brazil last week that it would follow the corresponding process with the labor ministry to deal with the situation according to the law, but that the union does not have the legal recognition to represent IT companies.
