At the meeting, the management has conveyed to the workers’ representatives that “the absence of supply of semiconductors continues”, and that this problem is not expected to be solved until before the fourth quarter of the year, as reported by UGT- Mercedes Benz through its official account on a social network. Those responsible for the Vitorian factory have also explained that they expect the plant to produce normally this week and next, although the plans for next week will not be confirmed until this coming Friday.

In addition, the management has warned the unions that, despite the fact that the workforce is currently working on the so-called ‘activatable days of production, the “flexibility” provided by this system is “insufficient”. For this reason, those responsible for the plant in the capital of Alava plan to convene the unions to negotiate a new ERTE for this year, as explained by the UGT.
