Ahead of the national strike called by the anti-government splinter of CGT and CTA umbrella unions for Thursday, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich denied any official interference in UTA Transport Union -which is yet to determine whether it joins the walk-out- and scolded opposition unions.

“We have had several meetings with UTA, and with workers, because we monitor the evolution of each sector,” the official said in his daily press briefing. “However, the decision to join the strike belongs to trade union autonomy,” he added.

Capitanich had strongly bashed opposition unionists yesterday, saying they were “vulture funds advocates.” He ratified his remarks today. “I have read ATFA’s (American Task Force Argentina) statement backing the unions. It is now clear to me tht they are not being financed by vulture funds, they do it for free, by their own conviction,” he fired.

“There is a contradiction in Argentina between those who defend the country’s sovereignty, us, and those who are against it,” he added, in tune with yesterday’s inflammatory comments.
