That oil-producing and importing companies and/or their derivatives have signed, on 4 August 1954, with the intervention of the Ministry of Labour and Security, the National Convention Eva Perón, which contemplates improvements in wages and benefits to workers of that industrial branch;

That the greatest exceptions to the implementation of the Convention, which was established as of 1 March 1954, have not been contemplated in the existing fuel overprice detentions for the National Energy Fund;
