Moyano: 'I don't see any reason for not meeting with Macri'
CGT Labour Confederation Secretary General Hugo Moyano, defended the meeting he is to have on Monday with Buenos Aires City Mayor Mauricio Macri, as part of the annual meeting of the Agricultural Workers Trade Group led by the head of the UATRE farm hands union, Geronimo Venegas.
“This is good for the country, and is an attitude that the public demands”, said Moyano during a radio interview.
“There is nothing wrong with seeing Macri. I have no reasons for dodging a picture with him. He‘s been elected by the citizens of Buenos Aires and I do respect that”, the unionist added.
Asked about his recent cross-fire with former CGT’s lawyer Héctor Recalde, the umbrella union’s leader said: “I am so disappointed in him. He can not throw away so many years of fighting to defend the union movement. I now feel also sorry for him as I see he made a decision that demonstrates he chose to be by the power and not with the working class. Honestly, I feel very sorry for him.”
