MALLORCA TODAY - Nueva Rumasa employees protest
Some 3,000 employees of the conglomerate Nueva Rumasa have taken part today in a demonstration in Madrid, calling for their jobs to be defended. Nueva Rumasa, with 30 companies facing bankruptcy, now faces additional problems with its cheese-production company in Menorca, Quesería Menorquina. Employees there have been on paid leave for five days, the consequence of there not being raw materials for production. Leading supermarkets have confirmed that they have been affected by supply disruptions.
