    Argentine Refinery Workers Plan Strike This Week, Ambito Says

    By Rodrigo Orihuela

    April 27, 2010 (Bloomberg)Argentine oil workers plan to go on strike at refineries in seven locations after two months of salary talks failed, threatening to cause a fuel shortage, Ambito Financiero reported.
    Workers, seeking a 32 percent salary increase, plan a complete halt at the units starting April 30 for an indefinite period of time, the Buenos Aires-based newspaper said, citing Alberto Roberti, secretary general of the Federation of Oil, Gas and Biofuel Workers.
    The refineries are located in Lujan de Cuyo, La Plata, Bahia Blanca, Salta, San Lorenzo, Dock Sud and Campana, Ambito said, without naming any company.  Spain’s Repsol YPF SA, Exxon Mobil Corp. and Brazil’s Petroleo Brasileiro SA are among oil producers that own refineries at the locations.
