FeMPINRA (the Port, Maritime and Naval Industry Federation) have called a strike at the Port of Buenos Aires this week, which began on Thursday at 5pm and is expected to last until midday on May 14. The stoppage affects all workers and operations of the three Buenos Aires terminals: BACTSSA, Terminal 4 and Terminales Rio de la Plata.

FeMPINRA argues the port companies have failed to fulfill the salary commitments agreed in the Joint Agreement Framework established on August 28 last year. Workers have demanded state intervention into the matter.

DatamarNews reported Argentina’s Ministry of Transportation approved the Buenos Aires Port licitation documentation earlier this week under Resolution 256/2019 to allow national and international parties to bid to operate the port for the next 50 years. The General Port Administration (AGP) set October 2 for the opening of the envelopes with offers made by bidders. The auditor of AGP, Gonzalo Mórtola, signed resolution 61/2019 today which grants permission to the interested parties to submit proposals.

Resolution 61/2019 is as below:
