Daniel Servitje is not leading a movement against the federal government

Bimbo’s director Daniel Servitje says it is false he’s leading a movement against the federal government. Last week, several blogs and social media accounts said the business leader is leading an opposition movement against the government. According to sources, Servitje is not interested in leading the business sector but is rather interested in working to improve productivity. We’ve been told that yesterday, during a meeting with business leaders, where Servitje was present, some of the current government’s actions were praised.

We’ve been told that the initiative is not approved by cabinet members and opposition lawmakers, as well as by a large number of Morena senators.

Trade unions have ignored transparency laws. Very few have little information, considered as public, in the nation transparency platform even though they are required to provide information. We’ve been told that they argue that they previously weren’t required to share this information, so they refuse to provide information from years ago. According to the current law, unions must guarantee access to all its information and explain their use of public resources.
