Labor Minister Raquel “Kelly” Olmos confirmed this after a series of conversations between government officials and top leaders of the CGT (General Workers’ Union). The first allies for this plan are the “heavyweights” of the CGT’s biggest service industry unions and their “independent” colleagues who maintain constructive dialogue with all governments. Both sectors, which include Héctor Daer (Healthcare) and Andrés Rodriguez (state workers in the UPCN union) among others, are the main union support for Massa and his potential presidential goal. Along the same line as Moyano, last night Gerardo Matínez, head of the Construction Workers’ Union (UOCRA), also raised concerns. CGT leaders, in any case, recognize that there is a consensus around, at a minimum, showing support for Massa’s plan.
