The direction of the firm of the rhombus in the plants of Castilla y León recognized that the scenario of scarcity of raw materials “in the context of a global crisis of shortages”, in this case microchips, results in the fact that the factories detect a lack of parts and slows down production. It is, company sources continued, it is a situation “carried for months.” The way to pilot this scenario, he continues, is the one taken today: convene the representatives of the workers and, as allowed by the agreement, convene a bag of hours within the deadlines established for certain flexibility measures. That is, from today to Monday and for next week.
