VHeadline Venezuela: Voices are being raised in demands for the immediate dismissal of the Basic Industry & Mines (Mibam) Minister Rodolfo Sanz, also corporate president of the Venezuelan Guayana Corporation (CVG).

National Assembly (AD) deputy and Accion Democratica (AD) Bolivar branch secretary Nelly Frederick says Sanz and his immediate executive team at MIBAM and the CVG should be fired immediately because of their incapacity to deal with recurring problems in the state-owned heavy industry conglomerate which has only accelerated the collapse of the core industries in the Guayana region, in particular aluminum smelters and bauxite mining.

Deputy Frederick says that instead of "importing" executives who know nothing about Guayana and its people, Sanz should be putting locally trained and skilled managers into the critical state-owned industries where they can commit to true and proven management with professional and technical expertise to rescue the heavy industry sector from its current crisis, "swamped by the failure of the Chavez regime's failed socialist policies." She accuses central government of promoting "a neo-liberal economic package which will produce more hunger and unemployment among Venezuelans."

Quoted in the regional media today, Friday (March 27), Frederick insists that the Accion Democratica (AD) political party "maintains a solid working basis, supports unity of the regional trade union movement in defense of the rights of 85,000 workers in core businesses, including out-sourcing."  She says they are in a critical situation due to scarcities and uncertainty about the future of state-owned companies under CVG management.

  • A year after it was nationalized, Siderurgica del Orinoco (SIDOR) production of liquid steel has fallen to 2003 levels with 780,000 tonnes less than in 2007 and US$160 million in losses, although the price of steel on world markets at the time was higher.

The senior ADECO leader says that traditional trade unions are the best form of organization to continue the battle to confront and defeat President Chavez and his government.  She says they are seeking to liquidate the CVG and the many-year achievements of the workers in their social and economic struggle.
