Building Workers Union of the Republic of Argentina - UOCRA, has developed active policies to curb the advance of the companies above supply chains that in order to achieve higher profits have the working conditions and workers serving as adjustment variable.
These new forms of insecurity related to working conditions, helps companies exploit the working conditions of supply chains for their benefit.
That is why our priorities are:

	FREEDOM of Association with Strong Trade Unions 
	Safer working relationships 
	Formalization of employment along the entire value chain. 
	COLLECTIVE BARGAINING for all building workers
	Safe work with SOCIAL PROTECTION for All

	Place in the CGT RA and UOCRA institutional web pages, a banner of awareness about the power of the companies with our slogans and demanding  "FOR SUPPLY CHAINS WITH DECENT WORKING CONDITIONS AND STRONG STATES IN THE FACE OF ECONOMIC POWER”
