The Banking Association ratified for this Thursday, February 23, a national strikeafter a failed negotiation for salary with employers of the sector, within the framework of the parity of 2023 and a carryover from last year.
In this way, this week’s banking activity will have only two days, due to the Carnival holidays on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 February.
This was stated by the head of the union, Sergius Palacein an interview on the cable signal C5N: “We have installed as parity issues, before discussing the percentage, that there is some kind of compensation by the companies of the income tax that the workers are paying“.

On the other hand, the deputy of the Frente de Todos reiterated his complaint about bank workers who must pay Income Tax.
So, demanded a bonus from companies, so that they offset the impact of it on their affiliates. “It is an amount that, as time goes by, becomes larger and has a greater percentage impact,” said Palazzo, who recalled that they sent a bill to Congress.
He also added: “Although we interpret that salary is no earningthe project tends (to reach) high incomes and not the majority of workers”.
The Banking obtained a salary improvement of 94.1% in the paritaria 2022which was placed just below the 94.8 percent of the inflation reported by INDEC.
Given this, they seek to compensate for this loss in the 2023 increase. “We are one hundredths behind with inflation,” Palazzo said in the interview.
And he added: “Starting in January, we had to have our parity resolved for the whole year, we began to chat and make some progress since December. But after two months there has been no possibility of advancing.”

The Bank’s claim
La Bancaria’s claim was detailed in a statement last week to ratify the measure.
In it, they let it be known that they continued “without having satisfactory answers in the joint meeting held on the day of the date” and pointed out the business chambers that, “irresponsibly”, turn a “deaf ear to all the claims and requests made”.
“It is inadmissible that at this point the banks continue to delay this situation, while the months go by and our salary remains the same, the issue of Income Tax remains unresolved and the purchasing power of our salary is less and less,” they added.
They seek to respond to “all the proposals made during the three joint hearings that have been held so far within the Ministry of Labor.”
