'April 10 strike is not political' - Moyano
Teamsters’ leader Pablo Moyano rejected criticism by Kirchnerites who have publicly considered the April 10 strike launched by anti-government unions “political” and warned the walkout “rallies more support everyday.”
In statements to media, Deputy Secretary General of the Sichoca Truck Drivers Union Pablo Moyano defended the protest action called by the leaders of the anti-government splinters of the CGT Labour Confederation Hugo Moyano and Luis Barrionuevo.
“The walkout is strictly based on salary demands and because the CGT receives no responses (from the government),” he said and denied the force measure involved “political” motives.
“How long has it been since the CGT broke its relation with Kirchnerism? (Hugo) Moyano withdrew when he denounced the government was giving no answers in 2010. It has nothing to do with a political strike as some figures are saying,” the son of Hugo Moyano – once a close ally of ex president and late husband of Ms. Kirchner, Néstor Kirchner, who actually supported the re-election of CFK in 2011 – affirmed.
With “no” political expectations on the CGT agenda, the son of Hugo Moyano said one of the slogans of the April 10 walkout is the protest against inflation and income tax that is “eating” salaries.”
