Argentina’s biggest oil union called off the strike they had launched yesterday demanding better safety conditions for workers. The decision came after an agreement was reached with oil companies, the trade union informed. The strike was declared by the Private Oil and Gas Union of Río Negro, Neuquén, and La Pampa provinces, which represents some 24,000 workers after a worker suffered the loss of an arm in a work-related accident a few days ago. It was the latest in a spate of recent injuries and deaths affecting oil and gas workers. Business chambers have also agreed to advance on security measures demanded by the workers to prevent new accidents, the union reported.
