For a second time, Unión Informática has sent a registered letter to Sonda S.A., asking managment for a meeting to talk about issues that IT workers face every day within the company.
A second registered letter to Sonda
On Thurdsay June 28 a registered letter was sent from Unión Informática to Sonda S.A., soliciting a meeting with heads of staff to discuss issues regarding IT workers’ labor conditions within the company. Important issues, including salary reviews and environmental health and safety issues, among others, were specified on the letter. This is the second time that Unión Informática tried to reach Sonda’s representatives this way.
Labor conditions in Sonda
Due to severe working condition issues in Sonda S.A., a quick response is expected from company. The need for salary adjustments is pressing as IT employees should receive a compensation that matches education and professional experience. Currently, Sonda S.A. employs IT workers for a gross salary of AR$ 2,200-. Arbitrary salary disparities for people working the same task are frequently observed. Day-to-day issues are present, too, like inappropriate or defective working tools, lack of training, infringement of the law regulating nurseries within the company, and methods of transportation for mobile workers.
Striving for dialogue
Looking for a way to establish a communication channel, Unión Informática sent the first registered letter to Sonda in April, asking for an informative meeting. The company didn’t reply, by any means. Subsequently, there was an attempt to suffocate the rising organization of workers from a company’s manager. Unión Informática reported threats and anti-union practices to the national Department of Employment. Currently, through a second registered letter, IT workers are trying again to find a solution for their problems by consensus.
Hopefully, Sonda will reply to its workers’ claims, reaching an agreement in benefit of both the company and its employees.
