UIA threatens to take the consumption reform to court if passed
Argentine Industrial Union [UIA] Vice-President José Urtubey said that if the reform that the Executive seeks for the Supply law is passed by the Congress they will “resort to the court”
“We have an observation regarding the Supply law because it could limit the companies’ gains, which would be inconstitutional,” Urtubey said during an interview with a local radio station.
“If this type of law is passed we will go to courts because we deem it inconstitutional,” he stated.
The UIA has voiced criticism against the bill to further regulate production and consumption relations drafted by the government saying it could affect investment and financing of companies.
