The head of La Bancaria, Sergio Palazzo, warned that on April 8 “there will be a number of important people” crowding into the entities
The head of the La Bancaria guild, Sergio Palazzo, came out to speak after the chaos of retirees and AUH beneficiaries who crowded in front of the banks to collect. He relieved the workers of responsibility, questioned the organization of the payment dates and warned that next Wednesday there may be problems again.
“The banks were the ones who attended yesterday and the ones who are attending today. Except for some lines that are here in the Buenos Aires suburbs, which are not many and are more orderly -because they have put chairs and issues that do not correspond to a bank worker- inside there is practically no one at any branch, “said Sergio Palazzo in statements to the AM750 “Toma y Daca” program.
“Inside they are going to be open for seven hours without practically attending to anyone and surely tomorrow will be the same. With which one thing is clear: people are crowded on payday. And it is inevitable because there is a culture of going to the bank, which does not change even in a crisis as serious as this. And when it happens, don’t blame the banks again like yesterday, “said the union leader.
And he warned: “There will be a significant number of people on Wednesday the 8th, when retirement payments will be enabled again, because the schedule begins on the 8th. That day those who earn less than $ 17,500, who are practically 60% of retirees from Argentina, get paid. “
“Day 8 is going to be a bottleneck because people are going to go to the bank, they are not going to withdraw the money through the ATMor. There they will realize that those responsible are not the banks, nor the media. Let’s look at this situation because it will happen, “warned the union member.
On the night of this Friday, the Central Bank of the Argentine Republic ordered that the bank branches attend from this Saturday, extending their hours.
Bank branches will attend from Saturday, April 4, expanding their hours. To unify in all the provinces, it was resolved that the banks will open during their normal hours and two hours of service will be added at closing (in CABA and GBA it will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
Only retirees and pensioners will be attended through the window with DNIs completed according to the following schedule:
The receivables for the month of March and non-contributory retirements:
- Saturday April 4 – 0 and 1
- Sunday, April 5 – 2 and 3
- Monday, April 6 – 4 and 5
- Tuesday, April 7 – 6, 7, 8 and 9
Benefits for the month of April:
- Monday, April 6 – 4 and 5 Non-contributory pensions
- Tuesday, April 7 – 6, 7, 8 and 9 Non-contributory pensions
- Wednesday, April 8 – 0 Retirements and contributory pensions less than 17,859 pesos
- And as of Monday, April 13, the schedule announced by ANSES continues.
On the other hand, from now on the Federal Emergency Income (IFE) will only be charged at ATMs.
The novelty took shape after an emergency meeting of President Alberto Fernández with the head of the Central Bank, Miguel Pesce, and that of ANSES, Alejandro Vanoli, to try to reorganize the payment of Emergency Family Income to retirees who receive the minimum and beneficiaries of the AUH.
Tension in the Government
It should be noted that President Alberto Fernández urgently called the President of the Central Bank, Miguel Pesce, and the head of ANSES, Alejandro Vanoli, to the Quinta de Olivos. to define the new mechanism for the collection of more organized pensions, after the criticism received by the Government for the agglomerations registered at the doors of the banks in the middle of the isolation by the quarantine.
With a strong discomfort, the president blamed both officials for the chaos that occurred this Friday, and that could lead to an increase in contagions of the coronavirus due to the situation of lack of protection in which thousands of older adults were left, seeking to collect their assets, he said. .
The head of state held an extensive meeting with Pesce and Vanoli to reverse the situation, and thereafter the statement emerged in which the new collection mechanism was reported starting this Saturday, ordered by the DNI termination numbers.
After the challenges to both officials, the objective of the hearing that Fernández headed was to avoid that in the next few days these crowds in front of the banks of people who are considered to be at greater risk in the face of the pandemic are repeated.
As reported, the President’s anger also spread to the head of the La Bancaria union, Sergio Palazzo, who sought to detach himself from the situation and considered that ANSES was responsible for the disorder and also alluded in recent days that the banks were not open by decision of their owners and not of the union.
Pesce himself confirmed that the President was very upset by the way in which the payment operations were organized, which may put in check the isolation that millions of Argentines have been fulfilling for the past two weeks in their homes.
“The President called me very early worried about the situation. Yes, he was angry, what do you think,” said the head of the BCRA in a radio interview.
