Luxembourg, Oct 15 (EFE) .- The Spanish Second Vice President and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, highlighted this Friday that the work on the labor reform must be completed “around the month of November”, so that it can be published in the Bulletin Official of the State before December 31, as agreed with the European Commission.
“I anticipate that the jobs are going fast, agile, and that within a maximum period, around November, they must be completed,” declared the policy upon arrival at the meeting of European Union Ministers of Employment (EU ) held today in Luxembourg.
Díaz recalled that in component 23 of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan sent to Brussels, the one to modernize the Spanish labor market, the commitment is assumed to have the labor reform published in the Official State Gazette “before December 31” .
“We have only left a structural reform, which is the Employment Law, for the first quarter of the following year, 2022, but what are the central elements of modernization of the labor market must be published in the bulletin before 31 December December, therefore, is for now “, he confirmed.
The Ministry of Labor has suggested to the social agents that companies cannot have more than 15% of temporary workers occupying structural positions, and Díaz found today that the way “is to reduce the temporary employment in our country.”
“We have been with more or less the same ills for 42 years and, now, what we are doing is working to correct them. Therefore, this is the central element of the labor market reform in Spain and in this sense, yes, it is a ambitious reform, in depth, and that looks towards the possibility of having decent jobs and, above all, decent lives, “he stressed.
He insisted that the labor reform is “fundamental” and “one of the most important in our country.”
“Spain is going to undertake a structural reform of the labor market, which has not been done in 42 years. We are going to modernize the labor market and, above all, to tackle its main problems. As you know, the main problem that Spain has it is its temporality and its different formulas of precariousness, “he commented.
In any case, when asked about the proposal to limit the temporary employees of the companies to 15%, she said that it should be “prudent.”
