Besides renewing commitments to their country, Cuban workers expressed their solidarity with the Venezuelan people.
During his speech at the meeting, CTC Secretary General Ulises Guilarte informed the audience that the confederation has been working on issues related to employment and salary policies, payment systems, collective negotiation agreements and job training.
After highlighting the workers’ contribution to the Cuban development, Guilarte rejected the U.S. actions aimed at intensifying the blockade imposed on his nation almost 60 years ago. He summoned the working class to a greater involvement in the country’s battle for its economic sustainability.
United States President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the nation will allow the complete application of Title III of the 1996 controversial Helms-Burton Act to enable Cuban-Americans to sue companies that work with that use land allegedly confiscated by Cuban officials in the post-revolution era.
