Long lines of passengers at bus stops multiply this Tuesday (8 ) due to a rail strike affecting those traveling from cities in the Greater Buenos Aires region towards the capital.

The Ministry of Transport announced that the strike, which began in the early hours of the morning, affects trains running in the metropolitan region of Buenos Aires – which has a population of 12,8 million – as well as regional and long-distance trains.

The secretary general of the West section of Unión Ferroviaria, Rubén Darío Sobrero, told various media on Tuesday that the union is “discussing nothing more and nothing less” than the emergency bonus for railway retirees, because they are below the poverty line.

In addition, this Tuesday there will be a one-hour strike on one of the subway in the city of Buenos Aires, from 14h, to require two days off per week, more employees and fleet renewal, as announced by Association of Subway Workers.
