PAMPLONA, 10 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The general secretary of the CCOO Industry Federation, Garbiñe Espejo, has defended that "geographically Spain is a country that can be a leader in renewable energies" and has demanded that "the productive part of wind energy not be dismantled."
He has highlighted the need for "industrial sovereignty", which "must also go through energy sovereignty", with a "bet on renewable energies", whether land or sea.
He stated this, in statements to the media, before participating in a meeting of the Federation Council in Pamplona to address the situation of Siemens-Gamesa, the automotive sector and the industrial demands that are going to be transferred to the new Executive.
Espejo has indicated that "as of today we cannot give specific data regarding Siemens Gamesa" pending a meeting in the coming days with the company's management. In this sense, he has conveyed to the company, the central government and the governments of the territories where the company is installed that "geographically Spain is a country that can be a leader in renewable energies, not only because of the capture of these energies" but " also in the production as such of these energies".
The union representative has valued the aid enabled for the sector by the European Commission but has requested that in "this injection of money" the "fundamental pillar must always be, no matter what, employment in our country."
Garbiñe Espejo has warned that "we are at a crucial moment for the country's working class" and has celebrated that "it seems to be, fortunately," that "next week we will be able to have a progressive government." A new executive from whom "we will continue to demand those social rights and those accompanying industrial policies that our country's industry needs." She has criticized that "there are those who are enjoying the social gap that is being created", giving as an example "the occupation that is taking place directly in front of the PSOE headquarters."
He has demanded from the next Government of Spain an "urgent" State Pact for Industry that contemplates "policies that accompany this change in the productive model" in "very important sectors such as automobiles or renewable energies." Policies that "have to be worked on in a consensual manner with unions and employers, since we are the ones who really know the reality that these sectors need to face this digital transition and this ecological transition that is already occurring in an accelerated manner as a result of the crisis." sanitary". To this he has added the need for a new Industry Law since "it has not been renewed for more than two decades."
