According to Massa, a solution was reached to the conflict linked to the claim for part of the subsidy, which had nothing to do with the workers' wages, at the same time he anticipated that "a dialogue table" will be formed on Monday to resolve "the problems that transport companies have".

"We want strong companies, we want public services that people can pay for, we want workers with good salaries. And that everything be the fruit and product of consensus and dialogue, not extortion," the official said.

The also candidate for the Presidency of Argentina added that "the pending joint act" and "the resolutions that will shield the service by the ministries of Transportation and Labor" were signed.

In a press conference at the Ministry of Economy, Massa lamented the forceful measure promoted by the transport employers and a sector of the Unión Tranviarios Automotor (UTA) union, which affected four million people.

"It is a sad day because it affected four million users and because of a discussion on the part of the subsidy, which has nothing to do with the salary of the workers, because the state deposited them in a timely manner to the companies," lamented the official .

"We are used to seeking dialogue, consensus, exhausting the search for solutions and solving people's problems in agreement: not with extortion, with a revolver on the table and we cannot allow that," he said.

The meeting headed by Massa was attended by the ministers Diego Giuliano (Transport), Raquel "Kelly" Olmos (Labor); Jorge D'Onofrio (Transport of the Province); and union representatives Roberto Fernández (UTA), Jose Troilo (CEAP), Mario Vaca (CETUBA), Fabián Ferreira (CEUTPBA) and Roberto Rodríguez (CTPBA).
