Employees from the company Stolt Sea Farm, with facilities in Carnota, Muxia, Camariñas and Ribeira, began a four-day strike in order to negotiate a new labour agreement.
According to the workers, during the first cessation day between 80 per cent and 90 per cent support was recorded. However, Stolt Sea Farm CEO, Luis Toro, said only 38 employees supported the strike, out of a total of 204 workers, the agency Europa Press informed.
The head of the IGC, Xabier Santos Canosa, described the strike as "a success," while criticizing "the excessive police presence for a company having 200 employees."
The union leader also referred to the "coercion and threats" by the directors of the company, who sent letters warning that those employees supporting the strike could "have an impact on their jobs."
