They also declared themselves “victims of subsidies” and emphasized: “It is inhuman to play with our peace of mind, without knowing if the 4th. business day we are going to collect our salary, because so-and-so did not transfer compensation, a subsidy, or whatever you want to call it.
“The payment of our bills cannot be at the discretion of the State (on whatever scale) similar to the feudal lord, we are not vassals, we are workers, and We demand consideration and respect.”continues the statement signed by the Secretary General of the UTA, Roberto Carlos Fernández.
