The secretary general of La Bancaria Sergio Palazzo met this morning with the Chief of Staff of the province of Buenos Aires, Martín Insaurralde, and the Mayor of Lomas de Zamora, Marina Lesci.

Martín ratified Governor Axel Kicillof’s commitment to discuss in extraordinary sessions the repeal of Law 15,008 that affected pension rights to retirees, pensioners and workers of Banco Provincia“Palazzo communicated on his social networks.

This is great news for the bank staff withdrawn from BaPro. The Law of the former governor of the Province of Buenos Aires, current deputy elected by the City, María Eugenia Vidal, was strongly resisted by La Bancaria.

The history

Sanctioned in December 2017 and published on January 17, 2018 in the Official Gazette of Buenos Aires, the norm established that bank workers who could retire from the age of 60, from then on they would retire at 65, after accumulating at least thirty-five years of service.

His application was planned gradually and would increase one year every two until he reached 65 in 2028. This year he reached 62 years.

The law they seek to repeal was passed during the management of María Eugenia Vidal

The Law also changed the substitution rate, that is, the percentage of the active salary that a retiree receives from Banco Provincia by lowering it from 82 to 70 percent and the retirement mobility that would no longer be tied to the bank salary variation and would become attached to that of the rest of the retirees, harming the sector.

The Internal Commission of BaPro faced the reform with harsh measures of force that paralyzed the bank for days. They also went to the Buenos Aires Supreme Judicial Court to claim the unconstitutionality of Vidal’s retirement regime.
