SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, March 9. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Plenary Session of the Parliament of the Canary Islands has rejected this Wednesday, with the votes of the quadripartite and the Popular Group, a PNL of the Mixed Group in which it was requested to comply with the April agreement of the Government of the Canary Islands with the strike committee to end temporary in public administration.
The spokeswoman for the Mixed Group, Vidina Espino, has warned that more than 4,000 workers are in temporary abuse in the Canary Islands, some with up to 27 years of seniority, and many over 55 who now fear losing their jobs.
In addition, he has demanded that the Government be “responsible” and commit to applying the agreements it signs.
Socorro Beato (CC-PNC) has indicated that the Canary Islands is one of the communities most affected by temporary employment in the public sector, with an average of 40%, and therefore proposes a “Canarian solution” that has been endorsed by the former president of the Constitutional Court.
He pointed out that his group does not share the ‘Iceta law’ but it represents progress and a negotiation framework for the autonomous communities, which is why an agreement has been reached with the strike committee to walk towards a local solution and it will be negotiated “in based on people and not positions”, valuing the merits and seniority in the job and not the category.
He has said that the draft of the Ministry of Finance “is a very dangerous precedent” because it invades regional powers and maintains that the places in dispute must be separated and not put on the market.
Melodie Mendoza (ASG) has commented that the Government recognizes the abuse of temporality in the Canary Islands, an “endemic evil” in recent years, at the same time that you have indicated that the Executive is working on the search for technical solutions to consolidate vacancies and reach the 8%, as required by the EU.
He has supported the “boredom” and “distrust” that interim and temporary personnel have because agreements are not reached in the sectoral months and he understands that it must be guaranteed that people who have been in the administration for many years remain on the staff “with all Your rights”.
For this reason, ASG has presented an amendment so that a work table with the strike committee, the unions and the institutions be convened as soon as possible to reach an agreement.
Francisco Déniz (Yes We Can) has said that it is necessary to resume the negotiations and that there be a selective process with defined terms to achieve stability in the places. “We are on the right track, the agreements are being fulfilled”, he commented.
“THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN”
Luis Campos (NC) has pointed out that the situation “is not new” and is weighed down because the public administrations do not call for vacancies regularly, while admitting that the unions also paralyze many processes.
He has valued that the ‘Iceta law’ already sets criteria through the contest and empowers local administrations so that they can negotiate mechanisms.
“This is an opportunity so that it does not happen again”, he indicated, although he specified that “it is not the same” who has been in the administration for 15 years compared to those of “three years and a day”.
Luz Reverón (PP) has explained that the ‘Iceta law’ regulates the procedure for places and the general table of the unions is the valid interlocutor in the negotiations, disfiguring Espino who obviates a second sentence of the CJEU that prevents the interim from becoming in career officials.
Manuel Martínez (PSOE) has accused Espino of not respecting the Constitution and defending that workers become civil servants without having to pass any test, which breaks the principle of equality. “We are the legislative power,” he reminded her.
He has pointed out that the only solution to resolve the conflict is to summon the places, make the interim permanent or pay compensation, stressing that there will be evidence, experience will be taken into account and compensation will be paid for 20 days of work year in case of suspension .
In addition, he has highlighted that four of the five unions at the table are in favor of the law.
