More conciliation, prominence in the Third Sector and personnel for Occupational Health, CCOO demands for 2022




In the usual ‘stew of the January slope’ that every year has been organized by the Workers Commissions of Castilla-La Mancha in Toleod, the general secretary of the CCOO of this union, Paco de la Rosa, has broken down the main proposals of his organization to continue advancing in the negotiation in favor of the workers of the Autonomous Community. Among them is advance in conciliation by way of aid to companies that favor it; have specific personnel to ensure compliance with the Occupational Hazards Act in order to avoid accidents; or the creation of ‘Equality Agents’ to ensure that companies implement plans aimed at achieving real equality between male and female workers.

One of these bets, as reported by Europa Press, is based on starting to “speak seriously” about working time and the real reconciliation between work and personal hours. Here has been asked if it would be “crazy” to think that a hotel worker could rest a full weekend a month, something that “does not happen”.

“What happens is that in the hotel industry, people work more than 10 hours a day from Monday to Sunday. But, can there be mechanisms to rationalize the time of our life that we dedicate to producing and the time that we dedicate to living?

De la Rosa has delved into this concept by proposing other hours in the commerce sector so that its professionals “can attend to the people they love most”, something that “is already a reality in other less productive countries”.

For all this, it proposes to help companies that want to rationalize these schedules through quadrants that allow “minimum times to reconcile life and work”.

In the search for this objective, he is sure that he will find the employers’ association and the regional government. “We have to be pioneers in putting that pike in Flanders and get workers who can think that in the next 20 years of their lives they will be able to work and reconcile their own lives,” he said.

The challenge of occupational health

The situation of occupational accidents is one of the extremes that the CCOO wants to continue putting among its challenges to overcome, after some data in which Castilla-La Mancha has been placed among the first with the highest number of accidents.

A) Yes, Although there is “a good law” on Occupational Risks, “surely we do not know how to use it well», and now it is «a broad deployment of measures so that not one more person» loses his life in his job.

“If the law is complied with, fatal accidents do not occur. There is not enough prevention, but that it is fatal chance that determines if a person dies does not have to be an option”, he has indicated, a problem in the face of which he proposes that there be personnel with exclusive dedication to work “seriously” on the problem of accident rate

These are not compliance “prosecutors”, but professionals who “work to try to prevent one more person from losing their life on this earth” while earning a living. A “specific” device to address the “very serious problem” of workplace accidents.

Equality and public services

The field of Equality between men and women will receive special attention from the union, in a market in which “women are the pagans of the system”.

The governments and the representatives of the workers have “the obligation” to advance in this matter, for which proposes “a first agreement for information to flow from all companies where an equality plan can and should be».

Those companies with more than 50 workers “must have an equality plan” that must not be “a cut and paste of the law, but a glove for the company” so that a person, by virtue of being a woman ” know that you will be able to aspire to conditions and remuneration equal to those of a man’. It has been along these lines that he has proposed special agents to ensure real equality in all companies.

In the same way, CCOO will continue betting to ensure that public services are the protagonists compared to private or concerted. “There are already fewer interims, but surely we do not have enough staff to attend to everyone,” he considered.

The last of the requests raised by the general secretary of CCOO is to place the union as a protagonist in the relationship between the Government and the Third Sector.

«We are going to ask for participation with the Third Sector, those of us who represent the workers are equally entitled to discuss under what conditions these services have to be provided on an equal basis”, he added.

Thus, he has stated that «it cannot be that social services are addressed only between Third Sector companies. Two essential legs are missing, the class unions, it is essential, “he concluded.

An exciting 2022

The appointment has served to share proposals for this 2022, an “exciting” exercise after a 2021 of congresses within the union, a “very special” year in which Unai Sordo was once again present, « someone with a great future.

With renewed teams and structures also at the regional and provincial levels, The year starts “with desire” despite the “shadow of the sixth wave” of coronavirus, part of a pandemic that has forced the union “to reinvent itself” and unionize “through networks or videoconferences.”

social dialogue

A pandemic that “has served to value social dialogue”, which in this country “has taken on such importance that it has served to return, after many years, to recover rights.”

«A find an understanding between the government, employers and unions, definitively closing a pending account with the public pension system”, he indicated as an example.

2021, “very intense as it was years ago” in terms of the recovery of rights, has also served to see fruits in social dialogue, “something that is good news and the beginning of a lot of things that will serve not only to improve conditions of workers, but to the economy of the country and to the support of the companies».

At the regional level, it has noticed the signing last summer from the Almadén Mines in the construction of a forum for this social dialogue. The region, he said, “needed a big house with many rooms to spread out” the game.

Depopulation, water and the 2030 Agenda

Now, he wants CCOO to be “next to the Government so that depopulation is not a problem” trying to see this problem “carefully” from national politics.

“We are going to sit down and we are going to take the hand of the Government so that the demand from this land towards national policies for those who live in depopulated areas is not an inconvenience,” he warned, demanding “free, universal and quality public services” in all the territories surpassing the extreme that it is more expensive to lend them in the rural world.

Too the problem of water and the “infectious river” that the Tagus represents will be another battle horse for union action, since CCOO «is not alone for direct attention to real problems».

As the most representative union, CCOO “is entitled to fight so that the society of Castilla-La Mancha is better every day”, also in water matters.

Ensuring compliance with the objectives of the 2030 Agenda is also on the roadmap of the Workers’ Commissions, a job that they want to take hand in hand with employers and the General Union of Workers.
