Just hours before his union marches against the national government, CGT umbrella union grouping General Secretary Héctor Daer on Wednesday urged for leading Peronist leaders to "try" to "unite" against President Macri in the lead up to the 2019 October general and presidential elections.
"They must try to unite. They cannot give up in their attempts to achieve this," Daer told Futurock radio, when quizzed about leading contenders Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, Sergio Massa and Roberto Lavagna.
Despite the candidates "having nothing in common," Daer warned that what was at stake in October was workers' rights.
Macri "will target labour reform" if he were re-elected, the union leader said said.
