DEAR WORLDWIDE CLIENTS,
We have some bad news to tell. AGAIN.
The bad news is that the labour rights of the workers of IBM Argentina are not being respected at all.
- Fair remuneration
- Good working conditions
- Job security
All these rights have been neglected to us.
We have allowed this to happen for a long time,
but we won’t put up with this situation any longer.
The time has come for us to claim our rights; that’s why
WE’LL GO OUT ON
STRIKE ON IBM ARGENTINA
ON SEPTEMBER 28TH
- A minimum wage of ARS 5000 (less than USD 1200) per month
- Equal remuneration for equal work
- Recognition of the seniority of those who have been employed as vendors/contractors
Among others, the following clients may be affected by this action:
ACE Group, Agnesian HealthCare, Allianz, Alto Paraná, Amanco, American Express, Amgen, Arcor, Arcos Dorados, AstraZeneca, AT&T, Avaya, Avis Budget Group, Banco Comafi, Banco Galicia, Banco Patagonia, Banco Santander Rio, Banco Supervielle, BG Group, Citibank, Copec, DirecTV, Disco, Dow Chemical Company, Easy, Endesa, Health Net, HSBC, Integramédica, Jumbo, L’Oréal, La Salteña, Locatel, Loma Negra, Manulife, MetroGAS, Minera Alumbrera, Morgan Stanley, Nobleza Piccardo, Novartis, Orica, Panasonic, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Quilmes, Repsol YPF, San Cristóbal Seguro de Retiro, Schneider Electric, Standard Bank, SunTrust, Techint, Telecom, Telefónica, Tetra Pak, Unilever, Volkswagen, Williams Energy Services.
This is our second direct action,
but it surely won’t be the last if IBM Argentina
insists to stand against its workers.
We are truly sorry to have to do this, but IBM Argentina leaves us no option.
