Gov't denounces 'deliberate strategy to radicalize protests'

Amid the ongoing labour conflicts in Lear and RR Donnelly firms, both located in Panamericana Highway, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich differentiated the two cases and said that “there is a deliberate strategy to radicalize protests” that seeks to “erode the confidence in the government”.

“Donnelly and Lear are different, it is important to differentiate the two,” Capitanich said. He pointed out that while Donnelly’s closure was decided “unilaterally” by the firm’s US headquarters, Lear autoparts company is “willing to continue its operations in the country” but it is being prevented to do so by “ideological or political stances that aim to obstruct economic activity”.

“We are struck by the unilateral, without consulting, sudden, arbitrary decision [taken by RR Donelley] that is strange to say the least,” the official said in his daily press briefing at government house.

Donnelly’s 400 workers found out yesterday they were set to lose their jobs with a note on the plant’s front door announcing the company’s bankruptcy. They have launched a protest in the plant’s entrance against the closure that continues today. They demand the firm to comply with the mandatory conciliation ordered yesterday by Buenos Aires Province Ministry of Labour.

Capitanich announced today that there is a conciliatory hearing scheduled for tomorrow at 3 p.m. between the two parties.
