Moyano suspends Monday's national strike

The head of the CGT Labour Confederation Hugo Moyano suspended the national strike and demonstration that was going to be held on Monday, but warned the government that their aim is to take the workers to “the power.”

“Now you can see that we are more than the ones that criticize us, those who appear at the television programmes, I really appreciate your support, but we will suspend the strike,” Moyano assured during a press conference after receiving the CGT’s support for Monday’s strike.

Nevertheless, he warned that he will not “accept anymore the lies and fake accusations that the union receives every day,” and added that “this fight does not end here, the workers’ fight does not end with a victory or failure, the workers fight is constant.”

In his speech, the union leader rejected the Justice’s accusations, assured he has “nothing to do with Covelia” and blasted the press, which he accused of acting “with a non-limited wickedness” to turn the union leaders into “serial killers.”

“We workers want to reach to the power and this fact annoys many people, but that’s our aim and we will not desist,” Moyano continued.

Along with truck drivers’ union leaders, Moyano considered it “ridiculous” to link him with Covelia and assured it “was the last straw” which led to the call for the strike.

“I’ve got nothing to do with Covelia. Let Covelia solve their problems,” the union leader added and stated that he “never” was and will not “be against the Justice.”

Moyano also harshly criticized former Health Minister Graciela Ocaña, the plaintiff of the tampered medicine case, and said that Truck Drivers are “at the Justice’s disposal, something that the owner of Grupo Clarín, Mrs Noble, should do with her children.”

Before Moyano’s announcement, the CGT board had reported their “support” to the strike that was going to be held on Monday.

Earlier, the CATT transport workers' union announced that the organization would be ceasing all services come Monday, adding more conflict to an already tense situation. CGT union secretary Omar Viviani had confirmed that the strike was to be held from 6 am to 8 pm.
