CGT, CTA warn of new protests in March

Pablo Micheli and Hugo Moyano.

The head of the CTA umbrella union, Pablo Micheli, and the secretary general of the court workers union, Julio Piumato, agreed that the recent raise in the income tax floor is “not enough” and announced a joint street protest for March.

Micheli pointed out that “no one can say that a 20 percent hike meets all the expectations of the average workers,” he said, arguing that it workers who paid an income tax in 2012 would also have to pay it this year.

“We could say that our strikes, demonstrations and demands managed to obtain that 20 percent. Had we done nothing, we wouldn’t have gotten anything,” Micheli said after he announced the new protests.

The union leader said this is “not a real raise”, for which the CGT and the CTA were planning on taking it to the streets.

“Moyano and I agreed to talk again because we’re again thinking of going back to the streets. We still don’t know whether it will be a demonstration or a march, but we will be there protesting because this isn’t a raise,” he emphasized.

“We’re losing in broad daylight,” he said regarding the Government’s decision. “What will await us once the economy stops doing as well as it’s doing now?” he concluded.

"A todas luces estamos perdiendo de una manera estrepitosa", sostuvo Micheli, con respecto a la decisión del Gobierno, y agregó: "Qué nos depara para cuando la economía no esté tan bien como ahora (en el país)".
