The official bill consists of only 17 articles. Of which, the “heart” is in Art. 4. There it is maintained that for “the adequate implementation, instrumentation and realization of the plan”, the government has to advance labor rights. In other words, the key to his diagnosis of the emergency lies in the fact that the workers are the adjustment variable. This implies:

1. Reassignment of personnel, transfers, changes in functions, which leads to discretionary and arbitrary management.

2. Prohibits the hiring of new personnel. And the renewal of existing contracts is being evaluated. This opens the door to dismissals, to arbitrary evaluations (already in Health the criterion applied is, “if you are conflictive”). Generates work overload.

3. Suspension of recategorizations. Particularly affecting those who are closest to retirement. The basic of the general scale today is $69,106.86 (max. category 24).

4. Suspension of overtime.

5. Suspension of payment for replacements of tasks that hold a higher position.

6. Start of immediate retirement process upon reaching the age and years of service required by Anses.

7. The provincial state will ensure a salary floor equivalent to the minimum, vital and mobile salary that is set at the national level. This reaffirms a low salary scheme given that today with the highest category (without seniority) the general scale does not reach the minimum, vital and mobile of $202,800. And it allows the government to only commit to paying up to that amount, in the event of a critical financial situation claimed by the state as an employer. Serious. (Art.5).

8. Issuance of public securities to cancel debt with state suppliers as of December 31, 2023. (Art.9).

9. Social assistance is aimed at human beings. This will weaken the collective organization of those who today are in social organizations, picnic areas, dining rooms, milk cups. (Art. 14).

10. It obliges municipalities to adhere to and establish ordinances in accordance with this Law, under penalty of not receiving contributions from the provincial treasury for expenses that do not comply with this regulation. In other words, fiscal whip for the municipalities. (Art.15)

We can affirm that This bill is like the labor chapter of the Constitution Reform for state workers. They take advantage of the climate generated by the national government’s fiscal adjustment to remove rights.

The UCR already has the votes to approve it. In fact they wanted to do it in the last session. But the PJ proposed a committee meeting next Wednesday the 3rd to speed up and approve the project soon. Everyone wants to send a message to the national government of commitment to fiscal adjustment in view of the pact they are preparing for May 25.

They can only be stopped with a unitary fight plan. of the unions, social organizations, native communities resuming and deepening the fight against the Reform.

From the PTS-FIT we present a social and economic emergency project in favor of the working class. There is an alternative to adjustment and the removal of workers’ rights. We make it available to the unions and the entire working class in order to fight for a way out of the crisis in favor of the majorities.
