The General Confederation of Workers (CGT) of Catalonia has presented a notice of call for general strike. The protest must be ratified by union members’ assemblies, sources from the organization’s secretariat said.

According to the union secretary general, Ermengol Gassiot, the general strike has been set for October 3 “because of the legal deadlines to be followed.” This call is made, for two reasons: “on the one hand, to claim the social and labor rights violated by the labor reforms since 2010 and, on the other, to fight against the cuts of fundamental rights and against the presence of armed forces in our places of work “.
