The CCOO and the UGT have once again made harsh accusations against the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Employment, led by Vox Councilor Mariano Veganzon. This time they point out that the General Director of Labor and Occupational Risk Prevention of the Junta de Castilla y León has asked the unions to take advantage of a subsidy of 494,982.50 euros “without a public call.” “Thus, it goes back to breaking the law,” he says in a statement sent to the media.
They insist that while it is dedicated to “cutting resources in contravention of the law” and accuse the unions of being “ultra-subsidised beach bars”, it subsidizes “unfairly on the fringes of illegality”. provides.
The unions are sorry that the counselor uses public resources to “try to blackmail” the unions and “break the law”, because, as they insist, there is no order that “summons, considers or grants” as described.
This action for the UGT and CCOO may be an alleged offense of pretext “outside all legality”.
For all this, and assuming that the board’s president, Alfonso Fernández Manueco, is “unaware” of this “illegal” proposal, they ask him to intervene “immediately and forcefully” to eliminate the “lack of control of the money public”. Let’s urge. According to the unions, it is due to their government partner.
What’s more, they finally qualify that they have already addressed Manuco to withdraw the “fake offer”.
Board response: “It makes sense that the input is direct”
It did not take long for the Junta de Castilla y León to respond. Spokesman and Minister of Economy and Finance, Carlos Fernández Carrido, explained that since there are only three union entities (UGT, CCOO and employers), “it makes sense that the contribution should be direct”.
When asked if he was aware that he had been offered a grant that has not been called for, Carrido indicated that “he is subject to a nominal address grant”, clarifying that it was “institutional”. There is a grant for “participation” that is within social dialogue.
Feedback from Employment Council
For its part, the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Employment, led by Vox, wanted to claim deductions made to both unions and employers. The department headed by Mariano Veganzones assures in a statement that the amount allocated for institutional participation has been reduced by 50%, from 3,959,860 euros to 1,979,930 euros: employers receiving 1,484,456 euros to 989,965 euros and unions reducing their share Let’s give amount from 1,273,702 to 494,982.50 euros each.
The Ministry of Employment itself states that the CEOE has already “applied and processed the subsidy”, a position that contrasts with the two majority unions, which “have not submitted any application for their institutional Have done partnership”.
All this in accordance with the General Budget Law of the Community of Castilla y León, which allocated an amount of 1,979,930 euros for 2023 to be distributed between employers and unions, in the framework of the Participatory Institution, following the participation criteria regulated by the Uniform Law. The most representative association and professional organization in the administration of the Community of Castilla y León on an equal basis.
UGT CyL made a controversial-administrative announcement
Subsequently, the UGT Castilla y León has announced that it will file an administrative dispute against the Board with the aim of defending “its own interests” with regard to the subsidy. In this sense, he insisted that when the budget for 2023 was approved, an “illegal act” was committed for not complying with the social dialogue law.
In statements collected by the Ical agency, Faustino Temprano, the secretary general of the UGTCyL, believes on its basis that the subsidies have “illegally” disappeared. He said the director general of labor invited him to join the board’s program and apply for aid of around 500,000 euros. However, Temprano recalled that “there is no decree, order, nor does anyone know what it is and how it is to be justified.”
As Ical has gathered, Temprano has confirmed that neither UGT nor CCOO has requested the said subsidy, at the same time they have demanded clarification from Veganzone as well as Manueco, who expect They didn’t know about it, because if they didn’t they believed it would be a matter of “extreme seriousness”.
