“The responsibility for the collapse of LARCO bears the signature of the government of ND, whose ministers initially discredited the company and let down the workers, while now they are leading them with mathematical precision to unemployment and eviction from their homes”. pointed out president of SYRIZA-PS, Stefanos Kasselakis, after a meeting he had in Parliament with the Board of LARCO employees, in the presence of the Justice Department of the party, Yiannis Sarakiotis.

Note that SYRIZA-PS is on the side of the workers and that supporting their just claims, has set the continuation of LARCO’s operation as a “red line” from the beginning, maintaining its productive character and safeguarding jobs and workers’ rights. “It is imperative to immediately renew the contracts that expire at the end of the year, and for this reason we will immediately undertake a legislative initiative”announced Mr. Kasselakis.

According to the announcement of SYRIZA, during the meeting “LARCO employees cited the enormous problems faced by the only ferronickel producer in the EU and one of the largest in the world, after the passage, in February 2020, by the ND, of the amendment by which it was placed under special management and the procedures for its sale have begun.” also “they focused on the fact that from August 1, 2022, all production activity at the company’s plant has stopped, despite the fact that the price of nickel is now stable at high levels and even maintenance work has practically stopped, as a result of which it presents today image of collapse, with the physical integrity of the workers being put at constant risk”.
