The head of the anti-government CGT labour confederation has added some fuel to the fire warning that if the Kirchnerite administration sets a salary ceiling, collective bargaining negotiations should be considered “over.”

“We can no longer talk about free collective bargaining. The government produced the adjustment and the inflation that affects us, let’s have them say that collective bargaining negotiations are over,” Hugo Moyano said today.

In an interview with a radio station, the union leader stated that the CGT is “evaluating the costs workers’ have faced.” “Speaking of inflation, we must know workers spend 80 percent of their salaries in food,” he insisted as he warned the government’s economic model “based on consumption” is doomed to failure if wages can not beat inflation.

“A salary ceiling below inflation means to abandon the consumption policy because people will no longer be able to consume,” Moyano said and directly accused President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner of being responsible for the raise in goods and serves. “They are responsible of applying the policies that led us to this (situation)."
