CTA's Yasky takes salary, tax income demands to Government House
Pro-government CTA central of workers met today with Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich, with its secretary general Hugo Yasky demanding a 35 percent wage hike, a compmrehensive tax reform, and a change of the income tax scheme, among other issues.
“Last week we requested a meeting with the labour minister (Carlos Tomada) and with the cabinet chief (Jorge Capitanich) and we have been granted (with a meeting) for tomorrow at 11 am. We will bring up the need to change the income tax scale in order to give more progressiveness to the tax and then mitigate the impact on lowest salaries,” Yasky said yesterday in an interview to a radio show adding the CTA will also demand an advance in the second payment of pensions of the year.
The workers' representatives called for a meeting of the so called Salary Council.
