SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Oct. 10 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, announced this Monday in the plenary session of the Parliament that the competitions of merits and opposition organized in the Archipelago to stabilize the teaching staff, in line with the demands of the EU and the approved state law in 2021, they will be delayed to the last quarter of the year 2024.
This was reported in the control session to the Government, as a result of a question from the deputy Carmen Rosa Hernández (NC) about the negotiations that are being carried out with the teachers’ union organizations to guarantee that the interim teachers from the Canary Islands are favored by the teacher stabilization process.
The president wanted to recall that a meeting was recently held with union representatives in which it was agreed to request the Government a modification of Royal Decree 270/2022, of April 12, which regulates the process of teacher stabilization, so that it attends to certain Canarian singularities, although he admitted that “it will not be easy because it is already signed”.
Likewise, he indicated that to avoid the knock-on effect that the unions fear and that would harm the teaching staff who have worked in the Canary Islands, the Autonomous Government will propose that more points be given for the greater number of years worked in the Islands, thus prioritizing seniority and modifying in that line the Royal Decree.
In addition, Torres considers “fair” that the Ministry of Education reviews and ratifies the places offered by the rest of the autonomous communities.
