CASTELLÓ, 28 Jun.
Marie Claire, UGT, and CCOO have signed an agreement this Wednesday in which it establishes a severance payment of 23 days per year with a maximum of 13 months for the 190 people who are going to be laid off by the company, as reported by the unions in a statement.
The agreement also stipulates that a workforce of 72 people in Vilafranca and 33 in the rest of Spain will continue for three months in ERTE, with the possibility of agreeing on an additional three-month extension within the bankruptcy proceedings that the company will file in mid-July.
The assembly has "overwhelmingly" supported the agreement signed today, which has been submitted for its approval.
The unions have stated that they will continue to fight to find alternatives for the Marie Claire factory, as well as an industrial plan for the dels Ports area, and they will continue to demand "real responses from the new administration to combat depopulation in inland areas."
The company - according to UGT and CCOO - has committed to opening the store to the public following requests that have come from many workers in other sectors "who want to show their support for the Marie Claire workforce."
The Castellon-based company dedicated to the textile sector announced its intention to close its plant located in Vilafranca and to voluntarily request the declaration of bankruptcy in order to proceed with the company's liquidation, as confirmed by union sources to Europa Press.
