Caló asks for meeting with CFK over economic 'complications'

The head of the pro-government CGT labour confederation splinter Antonio Caló expressed his concerns about the country’s economic situation and called for a meeting with President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner to discuss a “complete agenda”.

“The economic [situation] is complicated; very complicated when it comes to labour, there are problems to import, we are not exporting,” Caló said and added: “People are not buying […] consumption is complicated”.

The leader of the UOM metalworkers union said he plans to take his concern about the income tax floor to the Government House. “The fellow union colleagues are concrened, some even angry. They have asked us to request a meeting with the President to determine once and for all what the government is going to do with the income tax,” he said.

Caló also referred to the faltering situation of the automobile industry. “There is a lack of jobs, I have almost 10,000 suspended workers”.

Earlier today, the Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich in turn said the government had not received any formal request for a meeting yet, but expressed the Government House’s “willingness to dialogue”.
