Recalde warns strike could turn into 'boomerang' against unions

Victory Front (FpV) party lawmaker speaks during a Lower House session (file photo).

Strike called by anti-government unions is not being supported by the majority of the labour movement, ruling Victory Front (FpV) party MP Héctor Recalde affirmed saying the protest action was a “failure.”

“All strikes have a political nature and that is good, people have to take part in politics but this opposition bias it is they (unions) that are bringing it up,” Recalde told reporters today warning the walkout could turn into a “boomerang” against union leaders calling it.

Some of unions’ vindications, the lawmaker added, are “shared” by the government and expressed his confidence that the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration could move to “change” the income tax scheme “globally.”

Still, Recalde rejected demands to have collective bargaining talks reopened saying that such issues must be discussed with the business sector, “not with the government.”

“Some (salary) agreements were signed in June, July and August. Do we have to talk about union leaders’ lack of foresight?”
