Biotech Laboratories, a manufacturer of medicines for treatment of high blood pressure, has raw materials until June only, Ulises León, a trade union leader of the company reported on Wednesday.
According to the unionist, the company has received no inputs since January. Thus, production could come to a halt.
“No starting materials have arrived since June. We have been lowering production down and have no more to produce, only until June. However, the company argues that the government has not allocated them the foreign currency and most providers are abroad. The little stuff which is produced is not enough for all the people that needs it,” he remarked.
León added that the company expects to receive an answer; otherwise, they will resort to demonstrations “in order to make known the crisis in the sector which endangers workers.”
