General Labour Confederation (CGT) carried out a national strike in Argentina
Last Tuesday November 20th, the Argentine Workers' Central (CTA) together with the General Labour Confederation (CGT) carried out a national strike in Argentina with a set of demands for the administration of Cristina Kirchner.
The strike was the first of its kind in the last decade, and it signified the first large expression of the strategy of 'unity in action' agreed upon by the labour movement to confront with the government's policies.
