“Look at the supports of this norm,” Díaz continued earlier than getting into a UGT occasion in Alcalá de Henares (Madrid). “The employers, the big construction companies, came out, the PP came out, which is willing to vote for it but not in the electoral campaign. From Sumar we have made explicit in the Council of Ministers, without being able to explain what we have said, our opposition to that rule. I am not capable of bringing a rule to Congress that is not agreed upon with the majority partner. Why was it done like this on this occasion? It is something that the minister must respond to,” added Díaz, alluding to Rodríguez.
