Hearing unsuccessful between CGT members at Labour Ministry
The conciliation hearing between Moyano’s opponents and supporters within the CGT umbrella union, presided over by the Labour Ministry today, was unsuccessful in reaching an agreement over the state of play for the upcoming elections in July.
Julio Piumato, the head of the court employees union, at the end of the hearing stated that the CGT was to “continue ahead” with the plans to hold the election on July 12.
Representatives from the CGT umbrella union were meeting with Labour Ministry officials today in order to try to resolve the internal conflict involving opposing parties, regarding whether the decision by labour union leader Hugo Moyano to call for elections on July 12 is legal or not.
The hearing began just after midday at the Labour Ministry.
Both Moyano’s opponents and supporters from within the union were participating in the hearing today.
From Moyano’s side, Julio Piumato, Omar Plaini, and national lawmaker and lawyer Héctor Recalde were present. Carlos West Ocampo was representing the group of Moyano’s opponents.
A conclusion as to whether the elections are to take place on July 12 is expected to be reached today.
