In the midst of strong pressures from the CGT sector on the implementation of a new strike, the government today announced the Decree on Increasing Funds for Work in the Social Union.
The measure seeks to decompress the pressure of the most critical trade sectors and will increase the resources on health care services (SSS) based on the interests of bonds issued in 2016 and payments and interest on OSCE's debt with the state.

In June last year, the government adopted a similar measure to curb the CGT and avoid the political impact of the national strike. It was a global subsidy of 4,500 million pcs, which serves as an approval for the use of these funds. That is, they were not direct transfers from the state, but resources that could use social work in the future.

These funds increased the value of contributions to retirees – which amounted to about 400 people per capita and increased to 900 per month.
The measure was also carried out when the ability to measure national strength gained momentum after the mobilization of last week, coincided with CGT, two CTAs, social movements and a group of SME entrepreneurs, who united against the government.
