UIA's Méndez questions gov't's 'demonization' of business leaders

President CFK shakes hand with UIA head Héctor Méndez during a recent meeting with industrial leaders.

The Kirchnerite administration should not “demonize” business leaders “that much” because they don’t are “coup plotters,” head of the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA) Héctor Méndez has affirmed.

Méndez analyzed Argentina’s economic scenario today during a radio interview. “Inflation is always a worrying issue for me,” he said and questioned the government’s current criticism of the business sector, with top officials accusing its leaders of increasing prices “unjustifiably” and President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner calling for “cooperation” with Argentina’s "growth and development."

For the UIA head, business leaders should not be “that demonized” because they do not seek to destabilize the federal government. “We are not coup plotters,” he stated and added that the sector does have intentions to “collaborate,” “If we did not collaborate, we would be suicidal,” he insisted.

Regarding the collective bargaining talks in the sector, Méndez considered negotiations “won’t be easy.” “Industrial activity is clearly falling. If production drops, chances to give salary raises are relative,” he explained.
