Various trade unions - including the umbrella of ATE (Association of State Workers) and CGT (General Work Confederation) organizations - have called for a general strike to take place on Tuesday, September 25TH, to denounce austerity measures proposed by the government and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The CGT is the largest labor union in the country; one in five employees in Argentina, and two thirds of unionized workers, belong to the CGT.

During all the day of tomorrow, no one of the following services will be in operation between 00: 00hs and 24: 00hs at the Argentine ports: Custom service, SENASA, Mooring, Unmooring and Boats and Tugboats service.

Fyg: Aviation sector workers will be taking part and major flight disruptions are anticipated. The airlines Aerolíneas Argentinas and Austral have canceled all flights initially programmed for Tuesday. 

Associated street protests and roadblocks are to be anticipated in cities, notably the capital Buenos Aires, which could have a significant impact on traffic flows.
