The Argentine Petroleum Workers Union (UTPA), the Chamber of Hydrocarbon Production Companies (CEPH) and the Chamber of Special Oil Operations Companies (CEOPE), held tense discussions which ultimately resulted in a record number for the workers, since trade unionists have sat down at the table demanding 100% inflation. With this number, industry insiders and operators surpassed the inflationary statistics for the period.

Inflation in 2022 reached 94.8%, and almost double that of 2021, which reached 50.1%.

The deal relied on data provided by the consumer price index (CPI) for February and March to establish the latest tranche of 2022 parity.

“It is a fact or a story that allows parities to be normalized after the crisis caused by the pandemic and the application of agreements aimed at protecting jobs in the Neuquén basin,” Petroleros Privados denounces.

“The end of 2022 ends up being an almost 100% wage increase,” said Jorge Ávila in contact with ADNSUR, adding: “the work of the Neuquén union has been important and we are trying to fight inflation, even if it is from behind, but we are fighting it,” said Jorge Avila, general secretary of the Chubut Private Oil and Gas union.

It is estimated that in Neuquén, Río Negro and La Pampa alone, the sector employs around 30,000 people.

The oil unions have advanced it in the course of 2023 there will be a new parity and they will go back to “sit down to discuss”.
