MADRID, 17 Oct. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The UGT FICA union has not ruled out the call for mobilizations at Siemens Gamesa to defend jobs in Spain, fearing that the decisions adopted by Siemens Energy on November 21, the date on which it will celebrate its Capital Market Day, have "a great impact."
In a statement, UGT indicated that on September 20 it had a meeting with the CEO of Siemens Gamesa, Jochen Eickholt, to find out the status of the company, although "none of the key questions were answered", beyond reporting on the loss of contracts worth 1 billion euros in the last quarter and the company's estimated loss forecast of around 4.5 billion euros at the end of the fiscal year, referring to Siemens Energy's Capital Market Day to report any action taken decision.
After this meeting, the majority unions in Spain (UGT FICA and CCOO Industria) requested an institutional meeting with the president of SGRE and CEO of Siemens Energy, Christian Bruch, scheduled for this Monday, although it was "postponed" by the company to on November 24, after the Capital Market Day of the German parent company.
"Something that gives us very bad feelings in relation to the pending decisions and their future impact on SGRE Spain," considered the union.
Thus, after continuous restructuring since 2018 following the merger of Gamesa with the Siemens wind division, closures and possible sales of industrial centers in Spain, the union representation of Siemens Gamesa Spain has adopted a common strategy.
Furthermore, they stressed that contacts will continue at the European level, with the Government of Spain and with the regional governments. In this sense, last Tuesday they already informed the Minister of Industry of this situation.
