Within the General Confederation of Labor (CGT) there are different political ideologies. Although a large part of the entity supports the Frente de Todos, during the last few weeks there have been differences with the Government of Alberto Fernandez and one of its main leaders, Hector Daermade it clear with a sustained request for the Minister of Economy, Serge Massa.
«The government has to do everything possible to lower inflation and we have to do everything so that the workers do not lose purchasing power with the inflationary process,” said the union leader. He also rejected the possibility of receiving increases for a fixed amount because he considers it necessary to reopen the joint ventures.
“It is not about rejecting a bonus or not, what we are saying is that we must not start trying to raise salaries by a fixed amount. Here what you have to do is respect peer dynamics. Here The patch is shaken by how we resolve wages and what we have to resolve is that inflation goes down. Not only from the macroeconomy, but using the necessary instruments”, emphasized Héctor Dáer.
The future of the CGT
On the other hand, the trade unionist said he saw Sergio Massa’s arrival at the Ministry of Economy “with expectation” and considered that he should focus on “controlling inflation” according to NA. In addition, he ratified the CGT march on August 17 in support of the Government and against the “speculators” despite their differences with the Executive Branch.
“We expect a large turnout, a very large mobilization. We have spoken with colleagues from other sectors such as the Autonomous CTA, with SME sectors and with the social movements that participated in the meeting today. We are on track, “Héctor Daer completed in this regard. In this way, the Front of All will receive support in a period of crisis.
