Four teacher unions face Horacio Rodriguez Larreta and this Thursday they will strike at schools in the city of Buenos Aires. protest is a reaction for an advertisement for Head of Government of Buenos Aires –the latest in a series of cuts to teachers’ labor rights–, which seeks Carry out weekday teacher training activities to Saturdays, In defense of this change, Laretta argued that such students would have more class days, but above all he politicized the measure: he began by saying that in October boys would take classes they did not have. Was National holidays Arrangements after the attempted assassination of the Vice President Christina Kirchner. That is, the well-known PRO strategy of polarization from the right, with both teacher unions and the Frente de Todos.

He called for the unions to stop Ute, Sadoop, Admis and Cammy, All educational levels, i.e. elementary, primary, secondary, tertiary, pre-university schools and teacher training institutions will be affected by the strike. In the street, unions will demonstrate throat to schools, open spokesperson You traffic lightTo publicize the struggle.

“What is Larreta doing using a . Marketing and Electoral LogicAllegedly to ‘reform education’, intimidate teachers and affect our working conditions”, raised UTE Press Secretary, Paula Calligniana, the way the union understands the proposals of the head of government of Buenos Aires and the Minister of Education, Soledad Acua. In this sense, he explained that the location for institutional reform (EMI) shifted to Saturday are training meetings; The Teaching Law establishes that all training must be carried out during working hours. This is a historical authority: since 1949, teaching has been working from Monday to Friday.

“The Government of Buenos Aires intends to unilaterally revise our working conditions with a ministerial proposal. This includes the intention that the promotional contests also take place on Saturdays,” said Calligniana.

He said the resolutions on the other hand show “contempt for academic training”. “The PRO tries to make training sessions and spaces for teacher reflection look like unimportant things, like minor moments in the life of schools.” But EMIs are “the only moments a school has to bring together all its teachers to discuss, reflect on, and devise strategies to solve problems in the classroom. Fundamentally pedagogical issues are addressed. School dynamics make it impossible to hold these meetings during the school day, as teachers visit at different times and we are responsible for taking care of them when they are in school.

“In order to reach 12 days off the mandatory calendar—Laretta explained—we are going to reduce the number of days that boys lose because of institutional reform, which is due to teacher training”, to a three-day EMI. Take it to Saturday.

“It started when there was a holiday because of the assassination attempt of Christina Kirchner. They want the teachers to pay for that leave and let them go on Saturdays so they can ‘recover’ the day that Rodriguez Laretta herself Was told ‘lost’,” he also said.

William Parody, The deputy secretary of UTE (Ctera), was quick to say that “the strike is a refutation of the decision we work on on Saturday.” And he pointed out that the city government’s decision was taken without consulting the unions. “Teachers have already set a working day and what they want is that the days of institutional reform, which historically were school days with suspension of activities for students, are now on Saturdays.
