Montecon announced the dismissal of 150 workers and a 50% salary reduction

the port company Montecon announced the dismissal of 150 workers, and a salary reduction of up to 50% for employees who will remain on the workforce The company reported at a meeting held this Tuesday at the Ministry of Labor (MTSS). The national director of Labor, Federico Daverede, confirmed to The Observer the measure proposed by the port company. The MTSS convened a new instance for this Wednesday.

Montecon made the announcement this Tuesday before the authorities of the MTSS and the National Administration of Ports (ANP), the port union and representatives of the Navigation Center.

Sources from Montecon indicated that with regard to the salary reduction, the correct assessment is that the company stated that it should reduce the insured average wages from 25 to 15.

For its part, the Single Port Union and Related Branches (Supra) said in a statement that the number of layoffs in the outsourced companies of Estibas, Avilan and Bidol has not yet been quantified.

The unionized workers will carry out a informative assembly this Thursday in which they will define the “fight plan”. “It will have as its main objective the defense of jobs. This is a hard blow for port activity”, something that the union denounces since the extension of the concession to Terminal Cuenca del Plata decided by the government, added Supra in the letter.

Montecon currently employs around 395 people directly, and around 200 indirectly.

“We do not want to target the labor sources and start a policy of bailing out and reducing,” he had told The Observer in mid-April the general manager of Montecon, Martín González. And he added: “The goal is to try to maintain the workload. We are playing a game with a sloped pitch and a lot of disadvantageous situations”.
