ATEM (Asociación de Trabajadores de Energía Móvil – FeTERA) is currently discussing the incomes at the new biogas plants (generation of renewable energy) that the firm Secco SA owns in the towns of González Catán and Ensenada, in the province from Buenos Aires.
Antonio Samaniego, delegate of ATEM – FETERA at Secco SA, said in an interview with Informativo FeTERA (Nº 145) that “we are fighting with the company for those job posts. It is a discussion that we have been having with the company, and which, after all, we have been winning.”
“We are fighting for job posts at those plants. Our argument is that workers have been traveling through several provinces for 5 or 6 years, leaving their families 18 days, with only 7 free days, nothing else.”
“The issue we are raising to the company is that these positions be ours, because it also has to do with our labor continuity since some of the power generation plants that were owned by Secco are closing due to finished contracts.”
This is why from ATEM we are demanding Secco SA that “the job posts created at these biogas plants be ours,” said Samaniego and remaked that now “they are carrying out job interviews and training workers for the required tasks at these biogas plants, because we were working at electricity plants before.”
