Economic Efficiency in the Spotlight of Workers' Congress

Havana, February 21 (RHC)-- The achievement of economic efficiency amid current transformations in Cuban society is at the center of debates at the 20th Congress of the Confederation of Cuban Workers, the CTC, which is underway at Havana’s Convention Center.

The experiences and concerns of workers about the implementation of payment systems based on production results and the adoption by workers’ assemblies of annual production schedules are also high on the agenda of a commission focusing on economic issues.

Unionists are carefully analyzing the current salary policies and the participation of workers in vital activities for the country, such as food production and the replacement of imports with local production.

Other topics on the agenda include the role of union organizations, attention to workers, the improvement of labor conditions, new cooperatives and the struggle against social indiscipline.

The congress is being attended by 1,200 delegates from 17 national unions.
