Gov't on Thursday's strike: ‘Pickets are a sign of weakness’

Ahead of the national strike called for tomorrow by the anti-government splinter of CGT and CTA umbrella unions, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich said the walkout is “political” and that it ends up playing vulture funds' game. He urged strikers to respect those who decide to go to to work tomorrow and said that the announced pickets “are a sign of weakness.”

“Those who have gained the most (under the current administration) are now the strongest opposition,” Capitanich pointed out in his daily press briefing at government house. “Their priorities are political, they are members of an opposition front that seek to create an artificial debate in Argentina,” he added.

Asked about the government’s involvement in UTA Transport Union’s decision to not join the strike, the chief of ministers denied any official interference through transport subsidies bargains, as the anti-government splinter of the CTA central of workers Pablo Micheli has suggested.

He praised UTA’s decision as a consequence of the union’s “autonomy” despite “pressure” from anti-government unions.
