The closing of the Fusion S.A. maquila located in the Tipitapa zone is the third one in a month.
The company requested the Ministry of Labor for a temporary, 30-day closing. It originally operated with 400 employees and had already reduced its staff to 137.
Rafael Lara reported statements from Alberto Carlos Guadamuz, attorney for the Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights, CENIDH, to Elnuevodiario.com.ni: "The workers noted that they were earning a monthly salary of 4 thousand Cordobas in normal times. However, in recent months, they were only getting 2,150 Cordobas due to the drop in productivity, and it was not enough for family survival."
From January to August, 63.917 workers have been fired, according to data from the Work Secretary.
The actual figure could be much higher, warned Work Minister Nicolás García, who explained that "... many fired workers do not report to the Ministry, and they settle termination conditions directly with their employers".
