Even though the sediment has already been classified as non-toxic, the meeting served to assess the risks to the ecosystem in the long term
In search of local labor for its actions, the Renova Foundation, in partnership with the National Employment System (Sine), carried out recruitment sessions to register resumes in Santa Cruz do Escalvado and Rio Doce, in Minas Gerais. Registration rounds took place on August 15, 16, 22 and 23 and collected a total of 619 resumes.
This was the third recruitment session to register local workers. The first two took place in Barra Longa, when 646 workers were registered by Sine.
Renova expects to generate 3,800 jobs in the region that stretches from Mariana to Santa Cruz do Escalvado. Of this number, 70% is hoped to be local labor.
The action addresses the municipalities impacted by the collapse of the dam and that do not have a Sine post, as Francisco Carlos Lima of the socioeconomic area of the Renova Foundation explains. “We need to make the service providers hire professionals from the town. So, we have taken action and have begun to collect resumes”.
