Tomada meets with employees of Donnelley printing firm

Union delegates from the Donnelley printing plant arrive at the Labour Ministry to discuss the firm''''s closure.
Minister of Labour Carlos Tomada has met with delegates from the bankrupt Donnelley printing business and graphical trade unions, and pledged his support following the abrupt closure of the multinational enterprise's Argentina plant.

Tomada, accompanied by officials from the Buenos Aires province Production Ministry, today received representatives of the Buenos Aires Graphics Federation (FGB) and delegates from the firm, which on Monday declared bankruptcy and closed its gates.

During the encounter, which took place around midday, the workers, who have rejected the closure, received "total support and commitment" from the minister in finding a solution to the possible 400 lay-offs that closure would cause.

Employees were also shocked to be told that the courts had approved Donnelley's bankruptcy plea, asserting that "the courts do not act so quickly for a business, approving bankruptcy from one day to the next."

FGB organising secretary Mario Abraham described Donnelley after the meeting as "a firm which is full of work," adding that although the multinational company closed seven branches in the United States between 2011 and 2013, "the political issue is tied up with the vulture funds problem."

Donnelley union rep Martín Killing, meanwhile, revealed that the company had recently presented crisis prevention measures that would imply 123 lay-offs and salary cuts for the workforce, measures that were rejected by both the federal and provincial Labour Ministries.
