MADRID, 30 Ene. (EUROPA PRESS) -
An Argentine court has ruled that the labor reform that President Javier Milei tried to implement by decree is unconstitutional, dealing the latest blow to his plans to overhaul the nation's economy.
The court had already suspended the labor reform announced by Milei on January 3, after an appeal by the CGT union. Union leaders carried out a national strike against Milei's reforms last Wednesday, January 24.
The Government could have proposed the reform through Congress, instead of trying to apply it through an urgent executive order, as the judges explained in the ruling, reported by Bloomberg.
Milei's only recourse is to appeal to the Supreme Court or push reform through Congress. Argentina's Lower House will hold a session on Wednesday to debate the so-called Milei omnibus bill.
Milei's labor measures focused on simplifying employers' severance pay obligations and "trial periods" before a company must hire a full-time worker, among other reforms.
