Eltribuno reported that governor GERARDO MORALES, together with the ministers of Government and Justice, Agustín Perassi, and of Labor, Jorge Cabana Fusz, received a group of workers from Aceros Zapla, in order to address the current situation of the company, which requested the preventive procedure of crisis. At the end of the meeting, the workers were satisfied by the direction of the conversations held with the president. The general secretary of the UOM Alto Hornos Zapla, Víctor Aguirre, said that it was very positive that the governor could hear the workers' situation and stressed that "we clarified that, before malicious journalistic versions, we went to deny that the company is going to take people.” He added that "The governor spoke by telephone with the owner of the company, who assured him that it will continue working and will not fire anyone, and also anticipated that a new meeting will be held in the coming days with government authorities, the company and workers, to have full knowledge of how the company is working.”

Finally, Aguirre stressed that "the intervention of Governor Morales in this situation brings peace to all workers of the company Aceros Zapla."

Aceros Zapla, formerly Altos Hornos Zapla, was a steel & mining complex located in the department of Palpalá , province of Jujuy in Argentina . It was the first iron and steel center in Argentina, where the first cast iron was made on October 11, 1945. The plant is 13 km from San Salvador de Jujuy. The complex integrated two iron ore mines: Mina 9 de Octubre and Puesto Viejo, not more than 27 km from the blast furnace; and the exploitation of limestone. At present, the manufacture of steel is made from scrap exclusively.
