Bases Law in the Senate: the CGT and the CTA demanded changes in the labor reform

The Senate of the Nation resumed this Monday the 13th the treatment of the Bases law and the fiscal package, after having entered the intermission last Thursday. In an attempt by the Government to sanction the reforms before the May Pact, a deadline established by President Javier Milei, the ruling party negotiates with dialogue legislators to try to obtain an opinion.

From 3 p.m., the regulations are debated in the plenary session of the Commissions on General Legislation, Budget and Finance and Constitutional Affairsin a meeting chaired by the senator from La Libertad Avanza (LLA), Bartolome Abdala. Meanwhile, Kirchnerism, with José Mayans and Juliana Di Tullio at the helm, set the guidelines with the organization of the day and protests about the times for speakers.

17:46 – Atauche crossed Daer about the strikes and the actions of the CGT: “Where were they hiding?”

The senator of La Libertad Avanza Ezequiel Atauche (Jujuy) reproached the CGT triumvir and head of Health, Héctor Daer, for the actions of the labor union during the government of Alberto Fernández: “How many stoppages did they make? Where were they hidden?”.

After Daer’s presentation and at the end of the round of questions, Atauche, who is the president of the Budget and Finance Commission, noted: “Between 2019 and 2023, inflation increased four times: from 53 to 211 percent and poverty 11 points.”

“In that same period, the salary lost 39 real points against inflation. Where were you? What happened? How many stoppages did they make? Where were they hidden? Because they made one for us after 45 days and five months,” said the man from Jujuy.

Immediately, Daer stopped him and replied: “I will not accept that lack of respect. That where they were hiding is disrespectful.. Furthermore, I can answer them calmly.” In turn, the union leader threatened to leave the plenary session of the commission that deals with the Bases law.

After the episode, the Kirchnerist senator Anabel Fernandez Sagasti (Mendoza) came to the crossroads with Atauche: “You can ask the same thing politely. We are not going to allow from the Union for the Homeland bloc that you, our guests, disrespect them.”

16:44 – Yasky: “There is not a single article that respects 14 bis”

The national deputy and leader of the Workers’ CTA, Hugo Yaskystrongly attacked the labor reform included in the Bases law and which already had half a sanction from the Chamber of Deputies: “There is not a single article that respects 14 bis” of the National Constitution.

Along these lines, he continued: “In addition, It goes against article 75 of the Constitution, which speaks of the non-regression of laws.”. He said it during his presentation in the plenary session of committees that he has been dealing with, since last week, the Bases law and the fiscal package in the Senate.

For Yasky, if both initiatives succeed, Argentina will move “to a social model similar to that which prevails in the rest of the Latin American countries.” In his opinion, it is “absolutely regressive in terms of retirement coverage” which, according to what he said, is “the pride of Argentinians.”

16:04 – Daer, against the labor reform: “What is the goal pursued? If it is to lower costs, it should be specified in another way”

The head of Health and triumvir of the General Confederation of Labor (CGT), Hector Daerquestioned the labor reform that the Bases law includes and wondered what its purpose is: “If it is to reduce costs, it would have to be specified in another way”.

Daer kicked off a long list of speakers at the plenary session of the Constitutional Affairs, General Legislation and Budget and Finance committees; He was invited by the Kirchnerist senator Juliana Di Tullio (Buenos Aires).

The main points that Daer criticized were flexibility for hiring and the severance fund, among other axes. “The figure of the collaborator appears, an unprecedented figure because it does not exist in the world. The intention was always to bring them into employment contract law,” the trustee launched.

“It is the most serious thing about this bill because, instead of advancing in an adequate way, which is the formalization of workers, plain and simple We not only send them to informality, but we give them a legal umbrella”he added.

The Senate resumes the treatment of the Bases law in committee

On the basis of dismissal, he developed: “We enter into an excessively simple wording that contradicts the discriminatory dismissal, with the non-registration… So, it seems to me that With the lightness that this issue was taken it would even seem absurd”.

“The regulations end up putting a nominal value for retirement, social work, PAMI… And it is not made proportional. So, breaks the solidarity criteria that social security has in our country”he added.

To conclude, Daer asked himself in general terms: “What is the goal being pursued? If it is to lower costs, it would be necessary to specify it in another way and discuss the underlying issues, but not try to impose vague terms that lead us to end up destroying the financing of our country’s social security”.

The Senate resumes the treatment with the dialogue blocks setting the pace

The Senate of the Nation resumed this Monday the treatment of the Bases law and the fiscal packagewith the plenary meeting of the Commissions on General Legislation, Budget and Finance and Constitutional Affairsand with the opposition setting the pace of the treatment.

The plans of the ruling party, which aspired to obtain an express ruling, were buried and the pace of both projects in the Upper House was imposed by the dialogue blocks., something that seems to have surprised everyone and everyone. However, the warning lights were always there, since the Senate, in this case, is preparing to be the review chamber of the initiatives and the lack of politics with the leaders of the blocs was notable.

This new context, the agency detailed Argentine News, made the ruling that allows La Libertad Avanza to reach the venue a true unknown. If it does not extend beyond this week, They could only disembark in the Senate on Thursday, May 23just two days before the May Pact called by President Javier Milei for the 25th, in the city of Córdoba.

RIGI, Profits, money laundering, moratorium and labor reform were the hardest hit points of the project

Thursday, The provisional president of the Senate, Bartolomé Abdala, acknowledged that they accepted the note sent by Kirchnerism in which they requested the inclusion of new speakers without giving details of who. Senator Juliana Di Tullio had already anticipated on Wednesday that she would request the visit of the CGT, the two CTAs and the ILO to the plenary session. After Abdala’s intervention, a group of senators asked that the time to add exhibitors to that list be extendedwhich would be reduced to five per block.

The hardest hit points of the first week of the Bases law and the fiscal package, and which revealed an endless number of modifications in key chapters, were the Incentive Regime for Large Investments (RIGI), Profits, new money laundering, moratorium and labor reform. The calendar will play a trick on the ruling party in this sense, since on Wednesday the 15th the Chief of Staff, Nicolás , will present his management report at the venue for the first time.

Bullrich spoke about a possible alliance between the PRO and LLA: “They want there to be two proposals at the polls, the one for change and the retrograde one”

Parrilli trusts that Kirchnerism will stop the Bases law: “Theoretically we have 37 votes”

The senator of Union for the Homeland, Oscar Parrilli said that the bloc “theoretically has the 37 votes” to reject the Bases law in the Senate and pointed out that the opposition is not arbitrary, but against the management of Javier Milei.

“We, the senators of Unión por la Patria, have already had two meetings with the full presence and we have ratified our willingness to vote against the law in general“he said this Saturday on the program “Conflict of interests”, driven by Juan Amorín Radio 10.

Javier Milei affirmed that the CGT strike was “a resounding failure” and described it as “violent”

But he clarified that “There are also two missionary senators who were on the Union for the Homeland Ballot”, in reference to Sonia Rojas Decut and Carlos Arce (from the Frente Renovador de la Concordia de Misiones). He also mentioned senators Camau Espínola and Eduardo Kueider, both non-K Peronists.

“So theoretically we have to have 37 votes,” predicted the legislator. Parrilli stated that “beyond counting or porting,” His bloc opposes it “not on a whim” but because Javier Milei’s government is proposing “a series of measures that were proven to have failed.”
