The start of classes in doubt because the Milei Government does not call joint meetings

February, an important month for teacher salary negotiations, is being discussed as a challenge for education. The adjustment in the financing of public education, at the national and provincial level, posed an uncertain scenario just one month before the start of classes. The Omnibus Law, which could eliminate crucial funds for education, worries teachers unions and governors, anticipating difficulties to guarantee the start of classes at the end. Given this panorama, the different unions declare “alert and mobilization” due to the lack of a call to discuss salaries.

Teacher unions with national representation expressed their alert regarding the treatment of the Omnibus Law, which threatens to eliminate funds allocated to education. This panorama shows that, Salary conflicts are beginning to emerge in different provinces, while governors warn about the scarcity of resources to restore teachers’ salaries. Concern is aggravated due to the possibility of cuts in historic contributions from the national government.

Sonia Alesso, head of Ctera, warned about the possible impacts of the Omnibus Law on the National Teacher Incentive Fund, funds for school cooperatives, Conectar Igualdad and funds for training. Alesso declares to Página/12: «The draft articles worsen the situation and practically annul the national teaching parity. “It is serious and it worries us a lot.”

The national parity, which determines the starting salary of teachers throughout the country, has not yet been convened. Despite the commitment in January to hold the first meeting in February, uncertainty persists, directly affecting the planning for the start of classes.

Roberto Baradel, from CTERA, stated that “the government ignores teacher parity as an area of ​​negotiation” and highlighted Milei’s responsibility in guaranteeing the initial minimum salary, which serves as the national salary floor. Despite meetings at the beginning of the year, the lack of news about the call worries the unions.
