A few recovery messages from Argentina
Despite activity stop and difficulties, related to the pandemic caused by Covid-19 outbreak, CBR have assured they will pay wages to their employees, over 800 people in total. Federico Zalazar, general secretary of the tanners’ trade union (SECALAR), announced it: “The tannery stopped working because of a shortage of provisions, but we hope that the situation will get back to normal by the end of August – pointed out the representative of workers while speaking to nuevarioja.com –. Once salaries are now guaranteed, the key to take up again is a progressive recovery of international trade”.
Due to CRV outbreak, most hides, which were ready for shipping, could not pass through the customs: that was quite a problem for the company of course. For the records, the company currently exports 98% of its manufacturing, 60% of which off to China. In March, apparently, they stopped 30 containers: they therefore did not get any money for those goods.
