After hearing the news, the unions have expressed their assessments. From UGT-PV, the majority union in the plant after the recent union elections, the one announced today is a volume “more than considerable to reach an agreement that guarantees the voluntary nature of 100% of the casualties”, for which they warn that it is expected a “more than complicated” negotiation.

UGT-PV warns that due to the volume of layoffs it will be difficult for 100% of employees to leave “voluntarily”
