Dissident CGT, CTA ratify strike despite CFK's announcement

The dissident CGT led by Hugo Moyano and the faction of the Argentine Workers’ Union (CTA) led by Pablo Micheli ratified the national strike they will hold next Tuesday November 20th, despite President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s announcement that the income tax floor will be increased in 2013.

CGT Human Rights secretary Julio Piumato assured that the President’s announcement of exempting workers who earn under 25,000 pesos a month from paying income tax on the year end bonus “is a joke” and deemed it “a gift.”

Likewise, Micheli, who is in Cuba taking part of a summit of union leaders, said he found out of the President’s announcement by email. “This measure is only making fun of workers. If she relieves this will make us call off the strike she is wrong.”

“What she is doing with a 10,000 pesos salary- giving you 400 pesos just for once- is simply making fun of workers. She has no intention whatsoever of increasing the income tax floor," he added.
