They protest for the dismissal of the ten workers of the public nursery of Torrox

More than fifty people have participated on Monday in the protest called by the union CC OO to support the ten workers who have been dismissed by the Junta de Andalucía after assuming the direct management of the public nursery El Faro de Torrox, from of September. The employees, some of whom had been working in the center for more than twenty years, demand that the Ministry of Education grant a moratorium of one year in the term to assume this direct management, and that at this time their subrogation is negotiated, since They understand that the courts will prove them right when they bring claims for these dismissals.

Thus, the general secretary of the Federation of Education of CC OO of Andalusia, Diego Molina, recalled that in the whole of the Andalusian community there are 73 employees dismissed, belonging to five nursery schools in the provinces of Malaga, Cádiz, Almería and Seville. The protest has taken place next to the multipurpose center of Torrox-Costa, and it has been attended by neighbors and relatives of the workers dismissed. The concentrations will be repeated until next Wednesday in four other children's centers, located in Almería, Chipiona, La Linea de la Concepción (Cádiz) and Seville.

Molina has said that there is jurisprudence of the Supreme Court that guarantees that these employees have to be assumed by the Regional Administration when completing the process of direct management of childcare centers. "Once the corresponding resources are interposed, they will be readmitted, as happened in 2014 with the school monitors," said the secretary general of the Teaching Federation of CC OO, who said that "they will not stop" until they are readmitted.

Thus, he pointed out that it is a question of "social justice, because it is a real injustice what they have done with these workers," he added. Regarding the UGT and CSIF unions, he has considered that ?what they are doing is not real barbarity by not supporting these workers and aligning with the Ministry of Education?. The event was also attended by the general secretary of CC OO of Malaga, Fernando Cubillo, together with the general secretary of the Teaching Union of CC OO of Malaga, Félix Martín. The union has called a new concentration at the entrance of this nursery school for September 2, although it hopes that an agreement with the Junta de Andalucía can be r

Board response

For its part, the Andalusian Government has announced that it will adapt the situation of the Rocío Jurado, Mediterráneo, La Atunara, La Andaluna and El Faro kindergartens «to the legality after years in an irregular situation», while «guaranteeing the correct schooling of children enrolled on September 1 ». As reported by the Ministry of Education in a statement, the attention in these centers «will be in the hands of professionals with experience and qualification from the job bank that already exists to manage the casualties and vacancies of the Board's own management schools of Andalusia, and to which they have accessed by merit and ability, «they have apostilled.

According to the Andalusian bipartite government, of PP and Cs, "until the last moment they have studied different formulas that would allow the maintenance of the staff of the five affected nursery schools". Thus, among the proposed solutions, is the emergency contract. «However, this possibility, due to legal deadlines, left schools closed, and therefore neglecting children and their families, for several months. Due to the irregular management formula chosen by the previous government, it also did not offer the possibility of maintaining long-term employment for current workers, ?they have considered.

«From the Government of Andalusia it has been decided to prioritize the attention to minors and the provision of the educational service of these five nursery schools. Already in 2016, an Intervention report established that the Andalusian Public Education Agency could not continue managing these Infant Schools as it had been doing. However, until now, a problem that has been entrenched for years and which has had to look for a technical and legal solution had not been solved, ?they have considered from the department headed by Javier Imbroda, of Citizens. »Most of the unions are in favor of this measure that ends an irregular situation maintained for years by the previous governm
