Siro workers vote 'yes' to the pre-agreement to save factories and 1,400 jobs

The crisis of the agri-food company Siro moves away. The workers of its factories have supported this Saturday the pre-agreement reached with the investment partners that opens the doors to the future with an injection of 100 million to a company that was doomed to close. In this way, the five plants that the group owns in the region and the 1,400 direct jobs that remained in the air due to the delicate situation of Siro, with a debt of around 300 million, are saved.

The Minister of Industry, Reyes Maroto, has been in charge of explaining to the employees the terms of the document agreed upon last Friday after a five-hour meeting at the Ministry together with the works councils and the investment partners, whose initial viability plan was rejected by the majority of the staff.

Its first destination has been Toro (Zamora), which has also been the plant that first gave the green light to the agreement with 209 votes in favor, 13 against and 5 blank. Next, it has moved to Venta de Baños (Palencia), where its three factories have also supported the pre-agreement. In the case of the special employment centers and the factory called El Espinar, with 177 yeses, and in the case of the biscuit factory, whose closure was proposed in the first proposal, but not in the current one, with 205 votes in favor.

Finally, the minister has moved to Aguilar de Campoo (Palencia), where the employees have not voted on the new proposal, since they were the only ones who supported the previous one who had worse conditions and, therefore, they also support the one subsequently signed. .

“We are here to help”, Maroto said upon his arrival in Toro, where he considered after stating that the Government has “worked since February for the financial viability of the company”, but the part “of the work plan is even more important for the future of more than 1,400 families.

The minister has assured before the voting that she has moved to Castilla y León to "try to convince" the employees that the pre-agreement reached, which "has been improved in the last few hours" is a "guarantee for the future" and not just to "stop the bleeding."
