The General Confederation of Labor (CGT) this to the wait of the advertisements to do Serge Massa this Wednesday. The new Minister of Economy, Productive Development and Agriculture will assume his position in Pink House and the members of the workers’ union will be there. Subsequently will meet to schedule what will they do with the march on August 17.
Starting at 5:00 p.m., the Government House will have the new “super minister” chosen by Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchner. The representatives of the CGT will attend the act, who will be waiting for the announcements of the former president of the Chamber of Deputies. According to NA, after the measures the trade unionists will meet at the “small table” and analyze what the march will be like in two weeks.
Although the arrival of Massa to the Executive Power was seen in a good way, there are divisions within the union. This was exposed on the anniversary of the death of Eva Perón where Héctor Daer and Carlos Acuña led an act at the CGT headquarters. On the other hand, Pablo Moyano held the commemoration in front of the Ministry of Social Development.
On Tuesday the union leaders met with the chief of staff, Juan Manzur. The official asked them to reject carrying out the march that is already agreed for August 17. Despite the request of the former governor of Tucumán, at the time, the unionists refused to back down. Because of that they will be attentive to the plan that Massa proposes on Wednesday afternoon.
What they demand from the CGT is that there be concrete answers from the national government. Among the problems that most occupy and concern union leaders are the unbridled increase in inflation, the loss of purchasing power of the working class and the growth of unregistered employment, which increasingly takes away more power of representation from traditional unions.
