Euskaraz irakurri: Bizkaiko metalgintzako grebaren jaripena % 85ekoa izan dela diote sindikatuek
The unions have encrypted in a 80-85% follow-up of the strike called this Thursday in the Metal sector of Bizkaia by ELA, CC. OO., LAB, UGT, ESK, CGT and CNT in defense of the agreement.
The strike day began early in the morning with informative pickets and at 11:30 the workers have manifested in Bilbao, from the employer’s headquarters (FVEM) to the Arenal Bridge.
This Thursday’s strike is the first of three announced by the unions in the face of the blockade of the Collective negotiation. Specifically, there are also stoppages scheduled for June 30 and July 1.
Moments before the demonstration began, the head of Industry at ELA, Mikel Etxebarria, highlighted that the aim of the convening unions to “stop production” in the Biscay metal sector and “flood the streets” is receiving massive support .
Faced with the “blockade in the negotiations” by the Biscayan Federation of Metal Companies (FVEM), he pointed out that the Biscay Metal working class has given “a forceful response”. In this sense, he has warned the FVEM that “if it continues to block the negotiation, we are more than prepared for next week to carry out two other large strikes in Metal de Bizkaia”.
