SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Nov. 2 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Federation of Citizen Services of Workers’ Commissions (FSC-CCOO) demanded this Thursday from the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration more resources to avoid the “limit situation” of the workforce of workers and users in immigrant reception centers from Las Raíces and Las Canteras, on the island of Tenerife.
Since the end of May, the migratory routes of the Canary Islands have had a “brutal” increase in influx, with a 25% increase in the arrival of migrants so far this year, which represents almost 3,000 people a day, the union warns in a note.
In this situation, he points out that the workers of Las Raíces and Canteras “find themselves with a lack of structural resources and unaffordable disorganization, which generates an enormous work and psychological burden on the workforce.”
Along these lines, they detail that workers suffer days of more than twelve hours to cover transfers and constant requirements to work overtime, all due to the lack of personnel and the inability to incorporate more people in case of emergencies and foresight.
“It is impossible, even, to do something as basic as detecting the vulnerability of migrants, something that would allow them to request asylum,” they point out.
FSC-CCOO recognizes that although the managing entity of the centers, Accem, has tried to fulfill its commitments by hiring more, these are “insufficient” actions for an emergency situation.
For this reason, they understand that the problem also lies with the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration, which, as responsible, must guarantee sufficient resources.
The federation recalls that the position of the staff has always been to reach agreements through dialogue, “but they can no longer assume a situation that overwhelms them”, hence it warns that if this situation continues “they will propose mobilizations to guarantee Your rights”.
