"They do not know how calm it gives me that the CGT benches me. Make the effort to unite," Alberto Fernández asked before sixteen representatives of the directive council of the union central, led by Héctor Daer.

After an unusual



at Casa Rosada, the President and the cegetista leadership sought to revitalize the bond after the sparks caused by the closing of lists a little over a month ago and on the eve of the renewal process of the authorities of the workers' union, scheduled for next November 11.

"Trade union unity is central.

As long as I am president you will have a

voice, whether or not on a list

, " raised the head of state in the Eva Peron hall the first floor of the Casa Rosada, according entrusted to


sources on both of the meeting.

In addition to Daer, Carlos Acuña, Andrés Rodríguez, Gerardo Martínez, Armando Cavalieri, José Luis Lingieri, Antonio Caló, Rodolfo Daer, Noemí Ruiz, Roberto Fernández, Jorge Sola, Víctor Santa María, Sergio Romero, Robustiano Geneiro and Sebastián Maturano listened to him. .

Fernández's statement was not accidental: towards the end of July a

notorious discomfort

had transpired from the trade unionists

over the closure of the lists

of the Frente de Todos, which the representatives of the cegetista leadership who were waiting at the Azopardo street headquarters did not have.


We would have liked there to be more candidates,

" Daer said minutes before the meeting, still daylight.

Well into the night, the union member highlighted to the journalists accredited in Casa Rosada the tone that, according to the sources, flew over the meeting.

"We came to tell the President that

we are accompanying this process, this project,

" summed up the leader of the Federation of Health Workers.

He even revealed that in the coming days there will be a visit by the economic and social cabinet to the CGT headquarters, on Azopardo street.

The meeting, which also had the presence of Santiago Cafiero, Cecilia Todesca and Claudio Moroni - after Gustavo Béliz joined, once it started - took place this Monday two weeks before the primaries, and in the middle of the process of renewal of authorities of the union central that has the unionism in suspense.

After the Casa Rosada conclave there was, in fact,

a second part in San Telmo

, a few blocks away: Máximo Kirchner and Eduardo "Wado" from Pedro

met with Daer, Lingeri, Rodríguez, Martíne


That is to say,

the small table

of the CGT.

There are leaders, such as

Sergio Palazzo

, who did obtain a privileged place on the FDT list of deputies in the Province - fourth - who has a close relationship with Cristina Kirchner and who wants to have more prominence.

Just like Moyanism, whose relationship with the trade union center has been navigating troubled waters for a long time.

"This discussion is typical of the workers,

let's not talk about names,

" Daer answered in the Patio de las Palmeras of the Government House when asked about

Pablo Moyano

, Hugo's son and leader of the truck driver's union, and one of the leaders that has been mentioned insistently for months.

He has, for example, a more than fluid relationship with the head of La Cámpora. 

At the beginning of July, the Government had already made a gesture with the trade unionism with

the modification of the system of free election of the social works

, a historical claim of the labor


that Fernández satisfied with a decree that obliges workers with new employment to stay at least one year in the social work of the guilds.

A measure strongly criticized by prepaid.

The bond, in any case, was tightened again later with the pre-candidacies against the Todistas.

The conclave this Monday, fifteen days before PASO, sought to give strength to the relationship again.

"We are part of a Peronist government. You have all the support of the CGT, we will be by your side in whatever you need," was the message from the union leaders, according to official sources before this newspaper.

A diagnosis of the reality of each sector was also drawn up, promises to increase the non-taxable minimum of Profits were also reiterated and there was some unanimity in highlighting hints related to the "economic recovery" on which the Government wants to focus as part of the post-pandemic agenda.

This is what the Frente de Todos seeks in the

final sprint of the campaign

: to show unity in all its aspects, as long as the President or one of his officials does not ruin that roadmap with some occasional setback.
