The comprehensive transformation of Argentina’s economy promoted through decrees by its new president, Javier Milei, to reverse the country’s endemic economic crisis has encountered its first two judicial obstacles.

On Wednesday the National Chamber of Labor Appeals of Argentina temporarily suspended the labor reform included in the decree of necessity and urgency (DNU) which Milei announced on December 20.

The judges of the chamber issued a precautionary measure at the request of the labor union General Confederation of Labor (CGT), a union linked to Peronism.

On Thursday, they approved a second precautionary measure, this time at the request of another union group, the Central of Argentine Workers (CTA).
