Show your solidarity with Argentinean trade unionists fighting against Milei's ultra-liberal measures

Jan 19, 2024

The workers of Argentina are resisting the measures of an ultra-liberal government of the extreme right that, since the first days of its mandate, seeks to implement an adjustment unprecedented worldwide. This situation has forced the unions to react swiftly, organising, building alliances and confronting the regressive reforms.

The workers of Argentina are resisting the measures of an ultra-liberal government of the extreme right that, since the first days of its mandate, seeks to implement an adjustment unprecedented worldwide. This situation has forced the unions to react swiftly, organising, building alliances and confronting the regressive reforms.

PSI affiliates in Argentina, the national trade union centres and other allies in the broader trade union movement are preparing for a strike and mobilisation at the National Congress on January 24 to stop the advance of both the ‘Decree of Necessity and Urgency (DNU)’ and the so-called ‘Omnibus Law’ which contain a wide diversity of priority issues for Milei, many of with are clearly not urgent and won’t help the Argentine population to deal with the current crisis.

The decree modifies more than 300 regulations that affect and destroy critical areas of collective and public life in Argentina including health, tourism, medicines, trade, the media and regional economic integration. It presents trade unions as enemies and directly attacks the right to organise and to strike.

The ‘Omnibus Law’ has 1,649 articles that attack all areas of social and political life, including the fundamental architecture of the state. It is a law that would lead to the systematic dismantling of the public services upon which Argentinian citizens depend.

The National Strike, called by the General Central of Argentinian Workers, to which the other trade union centres (CTA-T and CTA-A), social movements and organisations, political parties, student organisations, and other allies will join, will confront and contest the use of unconstitutional legislative instruments that promote privatisation, austerity and the shrinking of the State, wage freezes, price liberalisation, precarious work, the handing over of land to foreigners, money laundering, and the increase of foreign debt.

For all of these reasons, PSI will join and promote the call for mobilisations and strikes on January 24 and fully supports the action plan of the Argentinian trade union centres.

Some actions proposed to take place on 24 January:

  • Write your own letter and deliver it to the Argentinean ambassador in your country;

  • Mobilisation in front of the Argentinean embassies;

  • Publicising support and your letter on websites and social networks;

  • Short videos (1 minute) of support for the Argentinean central organisations by the authorities of the different national central organisations.
