Argentine Farm Sanitary Agency Workers to Strike for Three Days

Aug. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Workers at Argentina’s Agricultural Sanitary Agency will go on strike for three days, hindering exports of grain and beef and imports of fertilizers, Guillermo Wade, an official at the port exporters chamber, said by telephone from the city of Rosario.

The strike at the agency, known as Senasa, will start at midnight local time and will prevent exporters and importers from obtaining certificates for their shipments at ports in Buenos Aires, Bahia Blanca and Rosario, Wade said.

“Certificates are mandatory for grain, beef exports and fertilizers importation, so trade will be delayed,” he said.

Senasa workers haven’t received a response from the government for their request for a 20 percent pay rise, the sanitary union Apumag said in its website.
