Carlos Marx Carrasco, as new Minister of Labor Affairs, will maintain approaches with the labor unions in the country to reach several agreements, among those, the creation of the Unique Central of workers (CUT). Just as in the coming days he will convene to members for a meeting, given that actions have been already coordinated with businessmen, thus was announced yesterday during his possession.
The Authority noted that the employer sector “welcomed” the creation of the CUT, not so the workers sector. Therefore, he pointed out that the creation of the new central depended on the willingness of both sides.
The Minister indicated that, in addition to make the CUT, he will lead the strengthening of the work culture and the improvement of the conditions of work in certain areas. He said that the portfolio of State had an outstanding debt in this last aspect.
Carrasco also offered he would work for the re-establishment of the National Labour Council as a forum for dialogue. “I do not apply hard or soft hand, but a hand attached to the law.”
