Terra Mitica to remain open

THE owners of Terra Mitica Theme Park have promised that the site will not close, despite 215 of the 386 workforce being laid off.

Such an assurance was given last Friday in the wake of protests outside its gates by ex employees and Union members. They also assured that they will not reduce the numbers of attractions open.

The matter of safety was not raised by either side when the announcement was made, though some think that security, maintenance and monitoring of crowds and those on the attractions may well be impaired with drastically reduced staff cover, if all the facilities remain open.

The demonstrations were part planned and part spontaneous as a number of employees did not know they were going to lose their jobs until the Friday when they were notified.

Many do not know their legal position as the employers dismissed staff under ERE (Expediente de regulación de empleo , which some fear might limit their rights.

The variation in Spanish labour law was designed to give flexibility in the workplace but now leaves many Terra Mitica staff uncertain as to their future.

At least 20 staff accepted their dismissal on the day, but many others are seeking legal advice on the matter, with the support of their unions.
