Català: Edifici del 1925 ocupat inicialment per la Caixa Mútua Popular, posteriorment pel sindicat vertical franquista i finalment per les organitzacions sindicals democràtiques. Té planta triangular amb dues façanes i xamfrà semicircular, entre la Via Laietana i el carrer Argenteria. S'articula en línies verticals marcades pels eixos de les obertures, interrompudes de forma discontínua per les línies horitzontals dels balcons. L'element visual més característic és el gran templet clàssic que corona l'edifici en el seu vèrtex. Formalment s'inscriu dins l'estil funcionalista que començava a imposar-se a l'època en els edificis administratius.
English: Built in 1925, initially occupied by the Caixa Mútua Popular ("People's Mutual Savings Bank"), later by the Francoist "vertical labor union" and finally by the democratic union organizations. The building is roughly triangular, with two main façades and a semicircular chamfer at the corner where they meet, between Via Laietana and Carrer Argenteria in Barcelona. The building is articulated by vertical lines of the the doors and windows, interrupted discontinuously by the horizontals of the balconies. The most characteristic visual feature is the large circular structure in the style of a classical temple, atop the building at its apex. The building falls within the functionalist style that began to prevail at the time for administrative buildings.
