Argentine Labor in the Global Era

More Plural Unions and Atomized Workers
  • Peride K. Blind


Effects of privatizations on Argentine labor unions and workers have been manifold. At the institutional level, the General Confederation of Labor (Confederacion General del Trabajo, CGT) was fractured into groups of labor organizations that have taken separate and distinct approaches to privatizations, including diverse strategies of collective action and revenue generation. Privatizations also have generated an increase in stateness1 by breaking the organic ties between union leaders acting as the managers of SOEs and the government. Finally, a new union leader has emerged at the local level of representation with a broader horizon, stronger educational background, and more ambitious plans of both personal and organizational advancement.
