Litera Meat, 15th May 2020
This week, the Management of Litera Meat, together with the heads of the different related areas, held a meeting with the directors of UGT FICA Aragón to supervise the safety protocol that has been implemented in the Company since the beginning of the sanitary crisis. During the meeting, the two parties restated their determination to continue working in a co-ordinated way on all the necessary actions that need to be taken to deal with COVID-19 and guarantee the safety and protection of all personnel.
UGT has intended to get through an assuaging message and, in its official communication, it has confirmed ‘full compliance with all the safety measures within Litera Meat, who is also committed to implement all recommendations and proposals to increase protection sparing no expenses’. The trade union has been closely monitoring all the actions which have progressively been taken within Litera Meat, keeping an active communication with their representative within the Company, aside from holding several teleconferences.
Litera Meat Incorporates Serology-Based Tests for COVID-19 to Pre-occupational Check-up
The Management of Litera Meat and the occupational health entity Más Prevención have agreed to incorporate the serologic test to detect antibodies against COVID-19 to the pre-occupational check-up, which will determine the immunity level of the incorporating employee. This test, which is carried out within Litera Meat’s own medical centre, is done on the blood samples usually taken as part of this examination and will lead to greater control to avoid potential infections.
Anticipation is one of the key factors to check the spreading of the virus and Litera Meat keeps on adopting the necessary measures so that all its staff can attend their job under the greatest safety conditions. To date, about a thousand employees have been tested and no new COVID-19 positive cases have been detected.
