  • Mr. Gerardo Martinez speech at 104º Session at ILO Annual Conference

MR CHAIR:
THE FUTURE OF LABOR RIGHT AND OTHER ISSUES ON THIS CONFERENCE HAVE AN UNIQUE IMPORTANCE AGAINST LABOUR RELATIONS THAT ARE COMING AND RAISE A HOSTILE STAGE FOR WORKERS.
 WORKERS HAVE BEEN OBSERVING NEGATIVE CHANGES TO OUR INTERESTS AND RIGHTS THAT REPRESENT AN A PROGRESSIVE LACK OF LEGITIMATE ASPIRATIONS TO THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
 ILO MUST COME BACK TO THE PATH TO ACHIEVE SOCIAL JUSTICE; THAT WAY IT SHOULD CONSIDER THE DIFFERENT REALITIES THAT ARE NOT THE SAME SITUATION IN ASIA, AFRICA, EUROPE AND AMERICA. THAT PROCESSES ARE HISTORICAL, CULTURAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DIFFERENCES.
SO THIS ILO, MODERN AND INTELLIGENT, MUST TRY TO UNIVERSALIZE AN A SOCIAL JUSTICE, NO DOUBT AT ALL.
 IN LATIN AMERICA, WE PROMOTE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CAPITAL AND LABOR THAT WE INTEND  TO REAFFIRM.
 THAT’S WHY WE SAY THAT THE SOCIAL JUSTICE FOR US IS MADE WITH FULL FORCE OF THE RIGHTS AND PARTICULARLY WITH STEADY AND PROTECTED EMPLOYMENT.
 ALL THE PROCESSES OF MODERNIZATION AND TRANSFORMATION WHICH HAVE BEEN INTEND FROM ILO SHOULD NOTE THAT WORKERS OF THE AMERICAS ARE NOT WILLING TO GIVE UP RIGHTS.
WE REJECT VIOLENCE AND ANTI UNION PRACTICE IN THE REGION.
 WE ARE NOT PREPARED TO ACCEPT THAT IN A WORLD WHERE INEQUALITIES HAVE INCREASED JOIN WITH THE CONCENTRATION OF WEALTH, THE ONLY ANSWER WILL BE INCREASE PRECARIOUS WORKING CONDITIONS.
THE DIRECTOR OF ILO HAS EXPRESSED IN HIS REPORT, THAT THERE ARE NEW FORMS OF WORK ORGANIZATION THAT CAN BE ACCOMPANIED BY INFORMALITY.
 AGAINTS THIS PROBLEM, WE WONDER WHAT IS THE COMPREHENSIVE SOCIAL MODEL WE WANT TO BUILD?
WE NOTICE CERTANLY TENDENCY TO PROMOTE A SOCIAL MODEL WITH A PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE BETWEEN THE FORMAL LABOR RELATIONS AND INFORMALITY
 WORKERS CAN NOT BE COMPLACENT WITH INFORMALITY.
 THERE WON’T BE SOCIAL PEACE WHEN IT HAS PROMOTED INFORMAL WORKING AND VULNERABILITY OF RIGHTS.
THE GOAL SHOULD BE ALWAYS THE SOCIAL INCLUSION WITH FULL RIGHTS AND SOCIAL ACHIEVEMENTS IN FULL FORCE.
 OUR SOCIAL CONTRACT MUST BE INTEGRATED WITH JOB STABILITY; WITH MANDATORY AND CONTRIBUTORY SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM; WITH DECENT WAGES; WITH GREEN JOBS UNDER THE CONCEPT OF TRANSITION FAIR, TO CLAIM TRIPARTISM AND THE NECESSARY ROLE OF THE ILO FOR SHOWING THAT WAY.
EVEN MORE, NOWADAYS THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM EMPLOYERS HUGE CLAIMS ABOUT THE RIGHT TO STRIKE AND THE CONVENTION 87 SITUATION, ALL CLAIMS THAT CONTINUE TO BE UNRESOLVED.
SINCE 2003, THE ARGENTINIAN GOVERMENT ASSUMED THE POLITICAL DECISION TO FACE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL  CRISIS  WITH STRENGTHENING THE SYSTEM OF GUARANTEES AND RIGHTS FOR WORKERS.
THE  COLLECTIVE  BARGANING HAS IMPROVE, MORE JOBS HAS BEEN CREATED, IT HAS GENERATED GUARANTEED THE FULL FORCE OF RIGHT TO STRIKE AND  THE LABOR ISSUE BECAME THE CENTER OF PUBLIC POLICY, WITH A GOVERNMENT THAT ASSUMED THE ROLE OF REGULATOR BETWEEN THE INTERESTS OF CAPITAL AND WORK.
 WE HAVE AN UNFINISHED BUSINESS: OF COURSE WE STILL HAVE TO ERADICATE INFORMALITY, CONTINUE THE FIGHT AGAINST UNEMPLOYMENT, END POVERTY AND INDIGENCE; DEDUCT WORKERS TAXATION AND STRENGTHEN HEALTH SYSTEM.
MR DIRECTOR, ALL THE EMPLOYEES OF MY COUNTRY   WILL FOLLOW UP EVERY EFFORT TO IMPROVE AND ENSURE OBSERVANCE OF RIGHTS OF WORKERS WORLDWIDE.
ALSO WE WILL ACCOMPANY WOMEN WORKERS AND INFORMAL SECTOR WORKERS TO  FIGHT ALL TOGETHER  FOR THE RESTITUTION AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THEIR RIGHTS.
FOR WORKERS, THE ENFORCEMENT OF OUR RIGHTS IS A POLITICAL OBJECTIVE; NOT ONLY A PART OF LEGAL FRAMEWORK.
ALL THE WORKERS HAVE THE DECISION, THE WILL, THE ORGANIZATION AND THE FORCE TO DEFEND RIGHTS AND IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF PEOPLE.
WE REAFFIRM THE VALUE OF WORK TO ACHIEVE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT WITH FAIR DISTRIBUTION OF INCOME.
THERE WON’T BE A WORLD WITH EQUITY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE WITHOUT ENSURING DECENT WORK WITH RIGHTS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
