Spain -Controversial dismissals -November 20, 2013

Freiremar, a company with several plants in Vigo and a staff of 114 employees, has decided to postpone the payment of wages and redundancy compensation for January 2014. One hundred employees working in Vigo received the redundancy letters. Meanwhile, the laid off workers remain concentrated outside the premises of the factory of Bouzas in order to prevent the withdrawal of goods or machinery from the place. The trade unions that agreed to negotiate some downsizing have seen no willingness from the management side to negotiate. The unions will sue Freiremar to declare the redundancies invalid and will work to ensure the workers’ rights in the plants. In addition, they consider calling for strikes in the affected workplaces.
