Labor Minister Oswaldo Vera supervised the resumption of production activities of US personal care company Kimberly-Clark in Venezuela in order to protect the employees’ rights

Labor Minister Oswaldo Vera claimed the Venezuelan government would protect employees of US personal care company Kimberly-Clark, which recently announced an indefinite halt in operations in the country due to the current economic crisis.

During a broadcast on Monday on state-run TV channel Venezolana de Televisión (VTV), Vera monitored the seizure of the plant, located at the San Vicente sector of Maracay city, north-central Aragua state. There, they activated the manufacturing plant of sanitary napkins, among other personal care products.

This move resulted from the enforcement of Article 149 of the Labor Organic Law, which reads that in the event of unlawful shutdown of a company and upon its employees’ request, the Labor Ministry is authorized to order takeover and resume the plant activities to protect the employees’ rights.
