Amidst the struggle, the cooperative insisted that they were free to hire any company that provided the service they needed. Furthermore, he deplored that he received threats from trade unions because of the open dispute.
“When we got the trip, They came to us demanding that we employ truckers who previously participated in a cooperative that had transport [la localidad de] victory, Which provides us cargo transportation service. The truckers were no longer in the co-operative, it ceased to operate; Now we work with other transport ”, A source at Ascension Cooperative told the medium.
The group of unionists would have demanded that they be hired to ship the goods and, seeing the refusal of the company that had been members of the producers for more than 80 years, they decided to bet on the income of their plants in El Triunfo, Semillero . And now on the income of the central household of the same locality. When confronted with the claim, cooperative officials replied that “they were already working with someone and for now they are fine.”
“We told them that we reserved the right to contract independently. They have the right to perform, but we also have the right to freely appoint whoever we want. They told us that they were going to take coercive measures if we didn’t hire them, and shortly after they cut off the entrance to the El Triunfo branch, and they weren’t letting in trucks to send us grain. We will have to offload to the port and fulfill our contracts to pay the producers who own the grain,” the source advised.
days later, he was summoned twice Lincoln Secretary of Labor to try to find a solution to the conflict, something that alarmed the cooperative members because the carriers are not direct employees of the company.But they provide outsourced service outside the company.
“These are truck owners, they are monotribute SMEs. They are not our employees, which has attracted our attention. They own their trucks, they are not employees of the company, but a union of businessmen. We attended the hearing to express our desire and said that we have no problem and we can hire whoever we want and when we need trucks we will call them if they can sell the services and we will not give them Jobs or jobs because the reality was that it was not so”, indicated the firm, which collects grains and distributes agricultural inputs.
“At the second hearing we gave way [de la cartera de Trabajo], because we believe that this is not the problem of the Ministry of Labor. At that time they raised the cuts at the El Triunfo plant and now they come here in Aarohi, yesterday they cut part of the agricultural inputs”, he confirmed in the cooperative.
Ascension is a city of over 6,000 residents and the cooperative’s headquarters are in the center of town, half a block from kindergarten and schools. The conflict that began with a few trade unions, in fact, neighbors say, has cut across the social pacification.
“They’re bothering people and they’re not truckers that are there, they’re not working people. It’s a serious problem. They want us to give them jobs, loads, we do not force them to buy diesel oil, cargo and transport insurance in the cooperative; They hire him wherever they want.” They said. “We work peacefully, but now we are having a very bad time together with all the employees,” he added.
On the union’s social networks, he shared several letters of support from the Regional General Confederation of Labor (CGT) from different districts, where he expressed solidarity with the alleged 35 “fired” carriers. According to what the trade unions would have told the directors of the agricultural cooperative, they would have the support of Pablo Moyano.
Country contacted the general secretary of the Fraters Guild, mario pereira, who said they demand the reinstatement of 35 alleged employees of the El Triunfo Transport Cooperative who previously allegedly provided services for the agricultural cooperative. Furthermore, he denied that he blocked the firm.
“The co-operative was created to provide a service to Ascension and as the co-operative was established, over time the founders formed a private co-operative, which they have now. They took customers from the previous one and vacated it,” he said, adding that there is a criminal case for this situation.
Pereira explained that the agricultural firm does not have its own transport, but charges freight from El Triunfo. “It was first created to provide services and now the founders have taken on customers,” he said. He indicated that through a third person, Erica Revilla, provincial senator (UCR) and former mayor of General Arenals, he was in contact with Pablo Moyano to see “what they could talk about.”
