Negotiations between Siemens Gamesa and the Spanish unions have collapsed. After the turbine producer's announcement on Nov. 6 that upwards of 6,000 employees would be fired, the negotiations have been ongoing in the affected countries. But in Spain, the union representatives left the talks as they were displeased with what they view as a "declaration of war" (Spanish article) from a disrespectful employer which leaks information and breaks the law.
"From day one, there have been problems with the information that the company has given us. When we sat down to discuss, we found out that the press knew more than us. Several times, employees have been given information at the same time as us. This violates Spanish law," says Jesús Fagúndez, union representative at Siemens Gamesa for the Spanish union CCOO's Siemens European Committee (SEC).
