The CGT ratified, once again, that the march is on the 17

The march called for August 17 by the CGT is becoming a real sorrow for part of the leadership of the workers’ union, the closest to President Alberto Fernández and, above all, to the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa. And this is so because it is necessary to ratify again and again the realization of the mobilization that will not have speakers and will only read a document that is still being drafted.

The sector that responds to Héctor Daer advances in carrying out the mobilization pushed by allied union groups, such as the unions that make up the Argentine Trade Union Action Movement (MASA) or the former Juan Carlos Schmid (Dragging and Marking).

It is also pushed by the union organizations that revolve around the Truckers and Smata axis, which were the ones who first proposed the mobilization, although with nuances that Daer, with the Fats and Independents, did not accept. This is marching towards the business organizations responsible for inflation and even for the currency run.

The need to mobilize could not be contained and so what Fats and Independents managed to impose is the march from the Obelisk to Congress without a stage, without speakers and the mere reading of a document. The slogan is against speculators. That’s where the deal went.

Yesterday, for instance, Daer once again reiterated that the march is taking place. The other triumvir did the same, Carlos Acuña, who in radio interviews had to repeat that he is not suspended. To make matters worse, Minister Massa said the day he assumed that he was thinking of a salary increase through a fixed sum for workers who receive salaries between 50,000 and 150,000 pesos.

Massa’s proposal made Daer and his allies uneasy and even angry. They had agreed with President Alberto Fernández that any salary increase would be carried out through joint negotiation. It is an issue that was fixed once the pandemic ended and that was renewed when the inflationary escalation began. But now Massa appeared with the fixed sum.

“It’s not about rejecting the bonus,” Daer said and clarified that “salary increases must be carried out within the framework of the parity,” he insisted yesterday.

Moyanism shares and supports the joint claim as the best tool to ensure that workers see their wages increase and reach a level of purchasing power that protects them from the inclemency of inflation. However, this group maintains a difference with the one represented by Daer and that is that they have no problem with the government granting a fixed sum. Of course, they warn that this “bonus” will not be able to suspend or displace the joint negotiation.
