Within the framework of the assembly of a new socialist business management model, the People’s Power Minister for Industries and National Production, Jorge Arreaza, visited this Thursday, without prior notice, the disinfectant and polishing sponge plants of the Clorox company.
Together with the working class, the minister reviewed the production processes and some critical knots to increase the company’s production and distribution in the country and even contemplate exports.
In September 2014, the Venezuelan government ordered the occupation and progressive reactivation of the Clorox plants in Venezuela. Right after the exit of the multinationals from the country headed to the drift of hundreds of workers.
By then, the U.S. owners of Clorox untimely abandoned the country, personnel, and facilities.
“Clorox Venezuela has become an unviable business. As a result, we have had to discontinue operations. This means that your labor relationship with the company immediately terminates,” announced Oscar Ledezma, Clorox’s manager in the country, in a pre-recorded audio.
The company, reactivated with the full support of the Venezuelan Executive, currently has 278 workers who maintain production.
