The Minister of Economy and Finance of the Junta de Castilla y León, Carlos Fernández Carriedo, assured this Monday that the Anclaje Foundation is "fully ready" to intervene in the Siro conflict between company and workers "if each of the employers considers its summons opportune”.
These are some statements that he made to questions from journalists before opening the information session 'Next Generation Fund Opportunities in Castilla y León' organized by El Mundo-El Correo de Burgos. “At the moment, the Anchorage Foundation is fully prepared to be able to do it and, naturally, if both the unions and the employers are satisfied that a call can be carried out, we would do it,” he said.
However, he stressed that "the basic and fundamental thing" is that at this time a competitiveness agreement can be had, after recalling "the work and the difficulties" that are "raised on the table".
Fernández Carriedo has encouraged the management and the works council to "reach an agreement that will ensure the future of Siro" and that "allows potential investors to carry out that investment." "If this were achieved, we could consider the persistence of Siro and its possible growth in the future," said the counselor, one day after the workers of one of the plants in the Palencia town of Venta de Baños went out to the street supported by a thousand people to protest the closure of this factory required by the viability plan.
