WORKERS REFUSE TO SIGN THE BARAGUA PLEDGE. By Juan Antonio Soto, Cuba Free Press.

PLACETAS.- Workers here at the Rialto Cinema cultural/entertainment center on Tercera del Oeste street refused to signed the so-called "Baragua Pledge." The government is imposing this pledge on workers throughout the island.

At a March 14 session the workers gave various reasons for refusing to sign the document. A young mother said she was sick and tired of so many pledges and that her pay was "not enough to feed her son." Those who did not sign had their pay docked for one day. The cinema employs about 50 employees, most of whom remained firm in their refusal to sign the document in spite of the sanctions.
