So the liquidity crisis expands like an oil stain. Of the middle there are not only the Enetec, fc is Iris that in recent days have announced the ordinary layoff fund for 246 employees in total. Wednesday fell to Gamit, engaged in mechanical maintenance for the iron and steel industry, inform the trade unions of the impossibility of disbursing them salaries of October a 50 workers because "it has not been seen pay bills from the multinational ", they report Fiom, Uilm is Fim-Cisl.
