Solutions to correct distortions

A core issue to be debated at the Municipal Conferences of the 22nd Congress of the Cuban Workers’ Central in Ciego de Avila.

The shortcomings that today are classified as profound distortions that urgently need to be changed in order to boost the economy, are becoming challenges not only for the trade union movement that is carrying out the process leading up to the final sessions of the 22nd Congress of the Cuban Workers’ Confederation (CCCW), which will be held in Ciego de Avila, Ciego de Ávila.

Cuban Workers’ Central, scheduled for April 2025.
Several concerns of the protagonists of the economic events remain unresolved, which have aged for five years since the celebration of the previous great event of the working class.

When in the province of Ciego de Avila, for example, half of the programme of the CTC’s Municipal Conferences has materialised, concerns persist, such as the national repercussions of the technological failures of the only bioelectric plant in Cuba, located in the town of Pina.

The problem has worsened this year, affecting the salaries of the staff at the Ciro Redondo plant, the most modern in the country, which lacks the energy and steam that should be supplied by the nearby bioenergy plant, so that the sugar factory has not been able to produce a single grain in the current harvest, and its staff has resorted to alternatives in the form of services provided to third parties.

Thus, the sugar tradition and culture are weakening in the municipality of Ciro Redondo, where the harvest of the sugar cane stumps left over from the last campaign, which should have passed through the milling plants of the sugar mills Primero de Enero and Ecuador, is only 26 percent complete, although the necessary resources for transporting the raw material over long distances, are scarce.

Another issue that stands out in the report is that the local economy does not meet the net sales and the Empresa Agroindustrial Azucarera Ciro Redondo, with 78.5 % of the total plan of the municipality, has a great weight in this indicator.

For this reason, Yuslaivys Borges González, member of the Provincial Party Bureau in Ciego de Ávila, emphasised the need to produce more sugar cane, sugar and agricultural products, the essence of the economy of this eminently agricultural territory.

So it is time to recognise that the sixty-year old economic blockade, an enemy of Cuba, does not want to withdraw, and it is also time to admit that it does not help to justify mistakes and responses without material resources, such as dissatisfaction with the distribution of profits, delays in payment and the wasted opportunity for remuneration for high performance, together with insecure working conditions and insufficient processing of decorations for the most outstanding in individual and collective emulation.

Nevertheless, Municipal Conferences have been held in Bolivia, Chambas, Venezuela, Morón and Ciro Redondo. This 19th will be in Baraguá and so the CTC in Avila continues to move the machinery of its 22nd Congress in the effort to meet the main challenge of its provincial meeting next November: For Cuba together we create.
