If the price increase has changed according to the plans of Finance Minister Nichole Duhovne and the trade unions will adjust their joint negotiations with this ideal model, at best wages will not lose their purchasing power in 2019. But Even in this hypothetical scenario, if we look at the four years of change management, the salary will have lost between 10 and 15 points, according to private estimates.
Labor and Labor Minister Dante Sika expected his first quarter of next year's labor issues at the end of the year with journalists, along with Duyova and Transport Minister Guillermo Dietrich. "There are already unions that have started to negotiate a model of 23% in 2019," they expect officially. These are no more than four negotiations, but very little if you consider that the Chambers, which make up a single business entity such as the UIA, should attend about 800 wage calls a year.
Sika said that "the ideal for the future is that all labor sectors negotiate wages in the first semester because it will improve expectations and prevent labor unrest." The so-called "strong season" of parity is between March and June, but this has an explanation No union would agree to discuss wages during the holiday period between January and February.
The minister said "there are no mass cuts in the economy" and said "some companies only warn" about their portfolio with some very specific cuts. He also pointed out that in big companies "they are looking for a gift of demand, so they have decided to find suspension processes and not mass layoffs until the economy recovers." He also considers that there is no increase in orders for preventive crisis procedures by companies "beyond usual".
According to the government, according to the government, the negotiation scheme for this year will be preserved. A number will be sought, at least several installments, and a date will be set for reviewing the inflation path to see if a correction needs to be made.
It is clear that if the government seeks inflation of 23% in the second half of 2019, the rise in prices should be delayed with violence.
In another aspect, Sica expected that in the coming days AFIP would be ready for a digital system that would allow the operation of Mipymes e-credit accounts and publish a schedule of sectors for which it will begin to apply from next year. the value chain of the automotive sector. Employer pointed out that the supermarket sector is the one that has made the most of the new tool.
