Just seven months after the start of the legislature and the bipartite government of Vélez-Málaga, of PSOE and GIPMTM, it has again the bulk of the staff of the Local Police, composed of 91 agents, on a war footing. After the demonstrations and protests in the plenary sessions, convened by the UPLB-An, SIP-An and UGT unions, majority in the police force, took place in the past, the representatives of these have raised their voices to denounce « the breaches »of the Councilor for Security, the socialist Chema Dominguez, and the mayor, also the socialist Antonio Moreno Ferrer, in his commitments to the workforce.
"The mayor is responsible for the mayor, who prevents the work of the councilor, which makes any negotiation fruitless, with the loss of time involved," they said through a press release, in which they recalled that after "support and trust requested by Domínguez to the police staff, in order to cover extraordinary events of July, already in August, as there are no resources left for the overtime bag, which today has not yet been charged, was demonstrated by of the staff an absolute confidence in performing these services without knowing at what time they were going to pay the agents, ?they said.
The unions added that in these seven months they have supported the councilman "for his involvement and negotiation, as well as accompaniments to strengthen his public position." "After countless meetings and conversations, it has been ensured that a series of actions would be carried out that would meet our completely fair and coherent demands," the unions considered.
However, they listed the "breaches" by the bipartite government: "He promised dialogue and settled in the Headquarters, but after six months it is almost impossible to contact him, nor is he hardly seen by the dependencies. He pledged to promote a new work system by January 1. He promised to change the uniformity, after a few months, 6,000 euros were invested and it has been a horrible ridiculous, since he has returned to bicolor uniformity ».
The unions criticized the "breach" in the development of a new overtime regulation, "to end abuse by certain subjects." «Ensure equality and equity, neither have facilities improved, have not removed asbestos from the Headquarters, nor have they changed the entrance gate. The workforce has not been restructured as of September 1, nor have new positions been called, nor has the workforce been reinforced through service commissions, ?they added.
The implementation of the 'Escorial' program to expedite the work of the agents and ensure their safety, increase the amount of overtime to cover the multitude of events safely, and have new bulletproof and anti-punch vests, are other breaches denounced by UPLB-An, SIP-An and UGT, which also ask to restore the worker responsible for the maintenance of police vehicles, "since they are in a deplorable state and endanger integrity."
The unions are waiting for three proceedings against the City Council to be resolved in court. «Due to the management with the overtime bag and the difference in the annual calendar, we are forced to go to court, with the cost that this entails to the neighbors, due to the poor management of the government team, something that could be avoided by applying common sense ?, the workers' representatives added, while they asked the mayor of Security for a meeting or assembly with the template? so that he can explain in first person the reason for repeated noncompliance ?with the Local Police .
For its part, this newspaper has tried unsuccessfully to obtain an assessment by Mayor Chema Domínguez or Mayor Antonio Moreno Ferrer on this statement from the three police unions in Vélez-Málaga.
