The UTA or Unión Tranviarios Automotor (Tramway and Motorized Drivers Union), is the labor union that represents people who work as bus drivers and subway drivers (Subway just in the City of Buenos Aires). The name of this trade union is a traditional and old one and includes the word tranviarios (tramway drivers) since the times when there were tramways in Argentina.
