from The BRICS Post:
Leaders of Brazil’s main trade unions met with President Dilma Rousseff on Wednesday to support her referendum proposal on political reforms, but refused to call off a scheduled protest.
The union leaders were invited by President Rousseff to a meeting at the presidential palace of Planalto to get their input on the questions to be submitted to Congress, according to a post on the Brazilian presidency website.
The government’s proposed referendum, raised by the president in an emergency meeting with Brazil’s governors on Monday, will ask the public to vote on a range of issues, including campaign financing and electoral reform.
Leaders from eight different unions attended the meeting, including the Unified Workers Central and the General Workers Union.
