According to what they reported, the objective of the meeting, which was held at the Azopardo headquarters, was to “define a union and legal strategy in rejection of the DNU and the Bases Law of the Government”, after the general strike and the demonstration convened by the labor union the previous week.
In the reformed text of the Omnibus Law, the Government limited the companies subject to privatization from 36 to 28, but among those that were included are all those that involve transportation, such as Ferrocarriles Argentinos.
Fight plan under analysis
After this Thursday's meeting, the CATT indicated that among the planned action measures they are “evaluating all alternatives and carefully following the legal and political front against the DNU and what is happening in the Chamber of Deputies with the Omnibus Law.” .
“Based on these two issues, we will evaluate the action measures that we consider most appropriate to prevent them from advancing with this brutal deregulation of the economy, repealing laws protecting employment, health, education, basic social and pension rights constitutionally enshrined “, he pointed.
