Alcoa workers stand against the Executive: “let him keep his promises”

A massive night march held this Saturday through the streets of Xove (Lugo) demanded that the central government “once and for all keep the promise” to intervene in the Alcoa San Cibrao plant, in Cervo, through the Sociedad Estatal de Participaciones Industriales (SEPI). This was stated by the president of the works council, José Antonio Zan, at the beginning of a walk that began at 8:00 p.m. on the soccer field and ended in the vicinity of the City Hall.

During the journey, the hundreds of participants they lit lanterns, candles and flares to make their protest visible, whose slogan once again appeared on their reflective vests and banners: ‘Enerxía solution’. For workers, the only solution is “that the SEPI make an intervention”, just like Zan said. In this sense, he demanded the support of all groups in Congress for an amendment to the General State Budgets (PGE) presented by the PP for this operation to be undertaken “for one euro”, which is the amount for which Alcoa offered the plant to the State.

Thus, the president of the works council assured that “it will be pleasant” for the workers.offer that euro for the operation to be done and save the factory. “However, Zan addressed the groups in the Lower House to warn that he expects” everyone “to support this intervention.” We do not expect any more good words or more support, we need to know what they are going to vote on each of the groups to amend one euro, “he added.

“If the plant is sold to a third party, it will have a future. If it does not go forward, then the groups that vote against will be the ones to close this factory “, insisted the president of the committee. And it is that Zan considers that “there is no more time for stories”, neither “for meetings”, nor “for support”. “Everyone supports us here, but we need them to become aware once and for all and take the measures they have to do,” he concluded.
