there's something I can't understand: won't any line pass near the universitarian zone?

Ninguna línea va a llegar o pasar cerca de la Ciudad Universitaria?

Buenos Aires Subway Workers Strike

Buenos Aires Subway Workers Strike, Demand 58% Pay Hike

BUENOS AIRES, Dec 05, 2005 (DJCS via Comtex) -- Buenos Aires' subway system was paralyzed by a strike Monday, causing problems for evening commuters, in the latest industrial dispute to hit Argentina's embattled transport system.

Following an eight-day strike by pilots and mechanics that halted flights on the country's main air carrier, Aerolineas Argentinas, workers for Metrovias SA, the private company that runs the five subway lines in the capital, called a strike.

Local news wires reported that workers are demanding an increase of 58% on their basic salaries of 900 pesos ($299.50), ARS1,200 and ARS1,900.

Union leaders will meet with officials from the Labor Ministry later Monday to try to resolve the conflict. No time frame has been given for lifting the strike.

Last week's airline strike was tentatively resolved through a standstill agreement by which the striking workers were given one-off payments that were far lower than the 35% salary hike they'd been demanding. However, there is a chance the airline conflict will be revived in three months, when the current agreement expires and both sides are to review the situation.

Argentina Subway Workers End Strike
Truce Until End-Feb

6 December 2005

BUENOS AIRES (Dow Jones)--Argentine subway workers returned to their jobs late Monday, ending a 4 1/2 hour strike after the Labor Ministry negotiated a three-month truce between the employees and company.

Employees at Metrovias SA, the private concern that operates the five subway lines in the capital city, launched their surprise strike at 3:30 p.m. local time Monday. This shut down the entire subway system during the afternoon and evening rush hour.

An evening meeting at the Labor Ministry resulted in a truce agreement that will be in place until the end of February. Subways were running again by 8 p.m.

Widespread media reports said the workers were demanding a salary hike of 58% from monthly wages of 900 Argentine pesos ($299.50), ARS1,200 and ARS1,900. The company offered 22% for the next three months while the two sides return to the negotiating table.

The subway strike followed an eight-day strike by pilots and mechanics at flagship carrier Aerolineas Argentinas (AR.YY), which reinitiated normal operations over the weekend and is gradually restoring its full flight schedule. That labor conflict is still simmering, however, as the Labor Ministry brokered another 90-day truce. Workers have said they will walk off the job again if their salary demands aren't met in three months.

Yeah, could be wrong, but Buenois Aires has I think the oldest subway in Latin America.

Argentina was richer than Canada at the beginning of the last century.

Comparatively speaking its declined over the past century.

So that may be one reason why the old trains are still in service.

Argentina has experienced an economic boom in past few years.

So hopefully they can modernize more of the subway.

It's right! Line A is the oldest subway line in Latin America.
People of Buenos Aires are sad because next year these trains will be replaced. The goverment of Buenos Aires is building new stations and a new electrical sistem for this line, so it will be impossible to keep them running.
Line A is like a museum, is part of Buenos Aires history.

Beautiful. I'm very fond of the architectural style used: thin iron/steel pillars, tiled walls, wooden ornamentation. Those antique trains really add to the feeling. Are they the original trains, or replicas?

Definitely, they are original.
They have been running for 80 years. And they are among the betters. The air in this line is fresh in summer, the trains has no technical problems, they are comfortable... We love them, they are our pride.
The stations are protected by the goverment as historical monuments.
