Six companies specializing in demolitions have been interested in tearing down the Delphi factory in Puerto Real (Cádiz), no activity since the multinational automotive shut down in 2007 after leaving the 1,800 workers out of job. The receivers who now control the assets of the company want to bring down the buildings that still stand to sell junk and get money to solve some of the debts that are still maintained with creditors.
The intention, as communicated to the unions, is to undertake this demolition before the end of the year. The Board and representatives of workers, maintaining opposing positions open in this labor dispute, they agree to reject the demolition because take away the possibility of installing a company in short time.
The receivers unions explained that although demolition wanted to do before the summer, we should expect more because there have been more than expected and companies need to analyze more time what is the best offer. The final will be presented to the judge of the province, who have the final say on when the ships will be thrown. “We want the demolition because what we ask is that they are the authorities which take care of the land and can attract some company soon,” said Miguel Paramio, USO, highly critical of the lack of response from the Board this and other claims of the group, as the convening of a meeting of the monitoring committee enters administrations and unions.
The delegate of the Board in Cadiz, Fernando López Gil, announced yesterday that shortly expected a meeting with the three parties represented in the Andalusian Parliament, PSOE, IU and PP is held. A meeting in which a consensus could be reached on the formula that Administrations may gain these soils.
The Board continues to believe that the formula is commendable that the Fins consortium formed by several administrations to promote an industrial estate in Puerto Real near the factory, which is buy the factory. However, the consortium continues to delay a decision on the viability of this operation on each meeting to be held sporadically over the past two years. The Andalusian Government does not want the demolition of the buildings that would alienate potential investors.
