Spain: Bosses at Catalonia's TV3 station respond to possibility of takeover by Madrid

The Spanish government reportedly may take control of Catalan public broadcaster TV3 following Madrid's decision to trigger Article 155 of the Constitution. Chief of TV3 Vicent Sanchis and President of the channel's workers' council Roser Mercader reacted to the reports from the television's headquarters in Sant Joan Despi, near Barcelona, on Sunday. Sanchis said: «The directors of the Catalan... Еще public television and radio could be changed. [It] seems difficult for me to see what will happen, nonetheless. I don't think that it will be that easy to have 2,000 employees work against the professional guidelines they have been working with until now.» Roser Mercader meanwhile described how the workers might respond to such a move. «The idea is to resist, resist [during] this time instead [of hitting] with a classic strike like we did at other times — stop working, carrying out strikes or other kinds of actions. What we will propose to workers is to take care and preserve the content. We will ask them to work for the sake of public information in Catalonia.» On Saturday, Rajoy announced the enactment of Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, which allows for the direct rule of Catalonia by Madrid.
