De Moyano first. In the midst of the internal tensions of the CGT for the organization of the plenary meeting of general secretaries next Wednesday in La Fraternidad, the truckers launched the first big protest of the second part of the year, a period that is expected with a big trade union conflict.
As reported by the Federation of Directors, the branch of water and soft drinks started to cease indefinitely in all Coca-Cola distribution centers this morning. "The degree of violence is assumed as a result of wage differences and the lack of application of the Collective Labor Agreement 40/89", reported by the trade union. Because Domain.com is known, this lack of application of the Convention will leave 70 drivers outside the multinational Femsa.
The measure started in Coca, but the Moyano threaten to expand it to other companies in the sector. "Until now, a national strike of all activities has not been excluded", they warned in a statement.
The blockade is the kick of the renewed Moyano attack against the national government, aimed at rejecting the agreement with the IMF, ending the approval of the budget and labor reform of 2019 and rejecting the visit of the G20 to Argentina on the street. At the presentation of the Multisectorial 21F in Atlanta, the following movements had already been announced, with the 7 mandates adopted by the 875 opposition organizations. But another element of conflict was added in the last days.
48 hours after the meeting of CGT trade union leaders at the Empire Theater, the truckers and their allies of Smata, UOM, banking, teachers, aviation, tolls and 55 other entities press the triumvirate, the "Gordos", the "independents", the MASA and other members of the Board of Directors to soon make a general strike. Carlos Acuña told Ambito Financiero that this would be possible at the end of September.
The new motive? After the mega-devaluation on April 23 began with a dollar of $ 20 to $ 31 at the end of August, wages lost almost 10% of purchasing power. Worse, with this increase in the greenback and the transition to parity prices that closed in 15% more review clauses or those that reached a maximum of 25% – such as Sichoca- were pulverized. Today, inflation has risen by more than 32% and the projections for 2018 are around 40%. This is one of the most important agglutinating arguments of all CGT sectors to once again launch a national strike against Cambiemos.
The drivers of Moyano started this Monday at 0 o'clock a stop for an indefinite period in the distribution centers of the company Femsa.
As Wednesday the plenary meeting of the workers' union is developing with the layout of a battle plan, as the militant sector under the leadership of Moyanism intends, compliance with the 21F measures, including the two CTAs, the federal current and social movements, but also political Kirchnerische and leftist groups. "A coordinated opposition", describe and give as an example of the "unity in action" the recent addition of the multisectoral to the federal university march on Thursday 30 August.
• Moyano dixit
After a tour of the distribution center of the General Paz y Ramón Carrillo Collector, the deputy secretary of Sichoca condemned an alleged "resale" of non-fibrillated Coca Cola products and non-compliance with overtime. "This hurts the workers, without distribution the shortage will be felt in the coming days", he stressed and sent a message to Jorge Triaca "We hope that the Minister of Labor will listen to the claim, beyond the hostility he has towards this union."
According to Moyano, the same situation is replicated in other companies in the sector, such as Quilmes, Villavicencio and Aguas Danone. "They want to reduce costs by paying for black goods or by hiring distributors who pay nothing, it would be good if the minister, the AFIP or the DGI come and inspect"he pointed out.
In this connection he recalled that the truckers had the "best" salaries and that there were no redundancies in their activity, so the government "meets Moyano to bend the labor movement". "We gained 25% plus a bonus and the difference that there is with inflation will be discussed in the context of the review clause, we do not exclude that Truckers ask to reopen the paritarias because inflation has already exceeded 35%".
Asked about the role of the CGT in the hands of the triumvirate, Moyano criticized the trade unionists who had met with the IMF envoys. "Unfortunately the comrades are totally out of place, they have met the Monetary Fund and when they suppressed the comrades of the Rio Santiago Shipyard, I did not see the CGT among the teachers, the Telam employees. will report a meeting with the IMF when the CGT and the peronism are confronted with that policy. & # 39;he noted.
The intention also was to align the power station with the most militant wing of the union, but denied the armed of a parallel CGT. "We ask for a call for the renewal of authorities and if that is not the case, we do not exclude that we create a space of our own to confront the policy that leads to labor reform, as was the case in the nineties, " he said. He added: "We want to renew the CGT to restore for the workers, unfortunately some of the leaders who fought against the IMF in the 1990s have recently reunited, and the others were those who have reformed (Carlos) Menem, the law approved) Banelco and they had practically agreed to the reform of Triaca ".
Moyano, however, clarified that if the CGT calls for a national strike in September, the truck drivers will be added. "Although we do not adhere to the policies they conduct, we will adhere to the policy as long as it goes against the economic model. We made one in June and that pressure led the CGT to call for a general strike on 25 June. "
At the 2019 elections, he recalled that his father had meetings with opposition leaders from all parties, including Cristina de Kirchner. "In Peronism everyone tries to take a candidate that contains all the workers, that will definitely be solved in a big STEP." Hugo was with various governors and mayors and is making a great effort to all Peronism, "he said.
Finally, he predicted more social conflicts in the streets for the coming months. "Hopefully the end of the year will be peaceful, no one wants the government to stop before we want to beat the government in the polls next year, but that does not exclude that conflicts will continue to grow because this policy is focused on labor reform and we are prepared to confront it "he concluded.
