One of them, Juan Nebot, who asked that the Court has already resolved the issue.
Karina Gonzalez, Secretary of former employees, said that this was the last time “opportunity for us to expose our workers evidence and arguments.”
She recalled that sinde six years demanding payment of utilities who labored between 1995 and 2000 “It has been a complete Way of the Cross, imploring justice, demanding that our rights are not violated,” said Gonzalez.
