and the Bus­ta­mante In­dus­trial Trade Union reach an agree­ment re­solv­ing the dis­pute over mo­tor car al­lowance for se­nior of­fi­cers at the Min­istry of Labour. The par­ties meet for some six hours at the min­istry to dis­cuss the mat­ter, which threat­ens to lead to in­dus­trial ac­tion by the work­ers. The union de­mands that the bank’s se­nior ad­min­is­tra­tive and ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cers be paid a mo­tor car al­lowance. The bank was not against the idea, but the Min­istry of the Pub­lic Ser­vice ob­jected.
