Argentinian police officers protest for better salaries

Published

on


Hundreds of Argentinian police officers protested on Wednesday to demand better salaries and working conditions, local media reported.


The officers gathered in the localities of La Matanza, La Plata and Lanus, all located in Buenos Aires province, according to daily La Nacion.

The monthly salary of a police officer in the province is 30,000 pesos (400 dollars), while officers working in the capital Buenos Aires earn twice that amount.

Many police officers do extra hours to make ends meet.

The protesting police officers were also demanding the right to create a trade union.

The demonstrations came after a string of serious crimes prompted the government to announce a security offensive in Buenos Aires province last Friday.

Mercedes-Benz has relaunched production in Argentina after a two-month standstill due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the German carmaker said.


The factory in Virrey del Pino in Buenos Aires province has its employees working only one shift.

They are being subjected to safety measures, such as a shuttle taking them to work, regular temperature checks, compulsory face masks and social distancing.

The South American country has started relaxing restrictions imposed on March 20 that shut most economic sectors down.

Argentina has confirmed more than 12,600 novel coronavirus infections and over 470 deaths.

Mercedes-Benz has been present in Argentina since the early 1950s.

The 2,500 employees in Virrey del Pino manufacture the Sprinter Van, light trucks and chassis for buses.
