La Fábrica de la Tele, producer in charge of Sálvame, has confirmed on Monday that it will initiate an Employment Regulation File (ERE) to its workers, weeks after knowing the end of the veteran evening space of Telecinco and its replacement by a new magazine led by Ana Rosa Quintana.
As explained in a brief statement sent to the media, it is "a formal procedure that begins and has legal deadlines", although the company declines to give more explanations regarding the number of people who will be affected by this measure. The producer, which has seen how other of its programs have also been canceled, as is the case of Deluxe, announces in its text that "works together with Mediaset in future projects". Meanwhile, it maintains in the grids of Telecinco and Cuatro spaces such as Focus, Socialité and Todo es mentira. But Sálvame and its satellite programs accounted for about 60% of the company's turnover.
Directed by Adrián Madrid and Óscar Cornejo, the company is one of Mediaset's production companies, in this case 33%. According to the newspaper 20 Minutos, those responsible for the company have communicated the ERE through an email to the members of the Works Council.
The presenters and the production team learned live of the cancellation of Sálvame last Friday, May 5. June 23 will be the day of its last broadcast, after 14 years on the Telecinco grid. In mid-May, internal sources of the production company already confirmed to this newspaper that the ERE was inevitable and imminent in a production company in which around 150 people work.
