The member of the triumvirate of the CGT Paul Moyano and the sector of the plant that responds to it would not join the March which Kirchnerist groups stipulate to lead next Friday in favor of Cristina Kirchner. The mobilization will take place in the middle of the trial that the vice president faces for the Vialidad cause. The truck driver, who had to give in to the internal pressures of trade unionism, would thus suffer a new setback in the workers’ union. Thus, the combative sector of the central weakens before other more traditional ones who did not support participation in the demonstration.
This sign, according to NA, represents a new triumph of the most traditional wing of the CGT, led by the “fat people”, the “independents” and the “barrionova”, represented by the triumvirs Héctor Daer (Health) and Carlos Acuña (Stations of Service). Unlike Moyano Jr., the third head of the CGT, both maintain a more distant relationship with Cristina Kirchner. After having organically supported it after the attempted attack, they chose to prioritize the “union agenda.”
The support of officials to the combative sector of the CGT
The position of mobilizing the deputy secretary of Truckers was launched by his supporters very close to the Patria Institute, Omar Plaini (Canillitas), Héctor Manrique (SMATA), and the new Minister of Labor of the Axel Kicillof government in the province, Walter Correa ( Tanners). In addition, other unionists aligned with Kirchnerism expressed their support, such as Sergio Palazzo (Bankers), Vanesa Siley (Judicial) and Abel Furlán, who a few months ago displaced the historic Antonio Caló from the leadership of the UOM.
Those inclined to traditionalism
In addition to Daer and Acuña, the refusal had the “signature” of Armando Cavalieri. Last Friday he renewed for the tenth time his mandate at the head of Commerce (and against the candidate of the Moyano family), Andrés Rodríguez (UPCN), Gerardo Martínez (UOCRA), José Luis Lingeri (Sanitary Works), Jorge Sola (Insurance) and Sergio Romero (UDA).
This is a new blow of authority against the influence of Kirchnerism in the CGT, since these sectors seek to prevent the central from adopting the agenda of La Cámpora. Previously, Pablo Moyano, who in recent times has communicated with sectors such as Hugo Yasky’s CTA and some leaders of La Cámpora, had already failed in his intention to make the CGT call a general strike for the vice president.
It remains to be seen if the Kirchnerism groups that planned to march this Friday the 23rd, when the vice president participates in the defense’s arguments as a lawyer on her own behalf. Or if they maintain the call or the loss of the CGT union leg translates into a reverse gear, as some have already begun to stipulate. Meanwhile, within the CGT, the majority groups distant from Kirchnerism once again established their will.
