Some 670 port workers of the industrial cordon already have a turn to receive the coronavirus vaccine, while on the other hand, judges complain about the slowness of the campaign and ask to speed up the inoculation.
The longshoremen belong to the Supa union and were declared essential from the beginning of the pandemic. “For a long time we have been asking for inoculation due to the tasks they carry out, and after carrying out force measures, today we must thank the authorities for speeding up the process,” said Aníbal Cabrera and Marcelo Vergara, from the Celeste y Blanca group of the guild.
But while the inoculation of dockers is scheduled, national courts based in Sitraju sent a letter to the Provincial Minister of Health, Sonia Martorano to request “Urgently” that workers in the sector are included in the Vaccination Plan against COVID-19.
Both federal and provincial justice workers, “we ask that their vaccination be accelerated”, Agustín Bruera, general secretary of the judicial union, pointed out that the sector was declared essential but was not included in the inoculation calendar.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic and to date, judicial workers provide the service of justice in an uninterrupted and effective manner, having to combine its provision with the preservation of the health of the people who supply it and that of those who attend to receive it, requiring the presence of the worker without distinction of position and / or function ”, he said.

The institution also highlighted that the “same progress” occurs with the workers of CET and Day Centers in the city of Rosario, San Lorenzo and Roldán, “a very complicated and compromised area in health terms”, they pointed out from Apridis
