The spokesman of En Marea, Luís Villares, today called on the regional and central executives to put in place measures to ensure the "continuity" of the jobs of Alcoa workers in the plantes of A Coruña and Avilés but without accepting the "blackmail" of the American multinational.
The situation, after the announcement of the closure of the plant in A Coruña is "very serious" according to Villares, since it puts "the real work of 400 people" in real danger "alluding to electricity costs which shows that it is a extreme that could have been "avoidable" if "competitive and stable electricity rates" were put on the table.
Therefore, according to the leader of En Marea, it is time to "reconsider certain initiatives that were rejected" aimed at lowering the price of electricity.
It has thus charged against the energy policies of the "successive governments" in the State that have shown a lack of "real commitment" to the sector.
The training demands that the Xunta "work jointly" with the State Government to "maintain the jobs of the factories", but without giving in to the blackmail of the company.
In this regard, Villares recalled that the multinational has received millionaire subsidies to adapt the work to the new reality of the sector, but not used for that purpose since the two factories that threaten to close have not received "any kind of modernization."
Therefore, from En Marea warns that they will demand "the return" of these subsidies, an aspect that will lead to the European Union.
In this way, they have announced that they will support all the mobilizations of the workers, listening to their demands and taking them to all the institutions.
In the same line has expressed the deputy spokesman of En Marea, Anton Sanchez, who has criticized the central executive over the past few years has allowed the "plundering" of a company that was public, while the rulers did "nothing" so that "as always, workers are the hardest hit."
