The Tucumán branch of the CGT published a request asking legislators Agustín Fernández, Gladys del Valle Medina and Elia Fernández de Mansilla, to “return to the Peronist bloc”, after their departure to accompany the Omnibus Law of Javier Milei, and Governor Osvaldo Jaldo went out to the intersection: “We are not going to be subject to pressure, wherever they come from,” he responded.
In this context, Jaldo fired his then Secretary of Labor, the Cegetista and Trucker leader César Torres, and all the officials in the area, “in view of the politicization of the CGT's position.” Fotia's sugar leader, Luis González, was appointed in his place. The sector was one of those who benefited from the libertarian project that will be debated this Wednesday in the Lower House.

“The deputies of the Independence bloc have made a decision without retreat, with total responsibility. They are going to continue defending the main regional industries, while the others want to negotiate them,” the governor confirmed, according to the Clarín newspaper.
Requested and deepening of Jaldo's crisis with Peronism
After Fernández, Medina and Fernández de Mansilla broke with the Unión por la Patria bloc and created their own under the name of Independencia, Pablo Moyano, member of the CGT triumvirate, from the Congress box, where the workers' central called within the framework of the general strike, he issued a warning to Tucumán legislators: “A Peronist cannot vote for this law or this DNU.”
Shortly before, Héctor Daer had asked them to “act in the face of the popular mandate of the people, to look them in the eye and act accordingly and not be in the dark.”
“We ask the legislators of the Independence bloc to return to the Peronist bloc, Agustín Fernández, Gladys del Valle Medina and Elia Fernández de Mansilla, who respond to Governor Osvaldo Jaldo, when they should respond to the people of Tucumán. “You have been elected and signed an electoral contract with the people of Tucumán, who elected you to defend the ideology of social justice and federalism,” the local CGT ratified in its request this Tuesday.
And he added: “Very few months ago, in this same province we warned that those who promote the elimination of co-participation actually want a unitary view of Argentina. There it became clear that there are other paths for a country of consensus towards development, production and work.”

After his harsh response, Jaldo doubled down by congratulating Daniel Scioli on his appointment to the libertarian Cabinet of Javier Milei and made it clear that his link with Peronism is completely broken.
“We congratulate @danielscioli on his appointment as Secretary of Tourism, Environment and Sports of the Nation. We wish him every success in his management of this new position that he will assume within the Ministry of the Interior, and we want to convey to him the sincere accompaniment and support of our beloved province. We trust that his experience will contribute to the growth and development of Tucumán and the country,” he wrote in his X account.
