CGT hands Gov't forty day deadline to hike income tax floor
Oscar Lescano, secretary-general of the energy workers union, gave the Government a 40 day deadline to give an answer to the raise of the income tax floor. He assured he supports Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s administration but does not completely support all of her decisions.
Lescano insisted that the cordial relations between the CGT led by Antonio Caló and the Government will last up to "30, 40 days tops" if they do not increase the income tax floor. We hope to have a reply, and not a too tough one,” he said in interview with La Nación newspaper.
The unionist also clarified that he is against a potential re-reelection of the President and although he is currently not backing any alternative candidate for the 2015 elections, “the only one I would like is (Buenos Aires province governor Daniel) Scioli."
