SNTE has put forward the position of the reform of the pension system. We told you!

The National Union of Education Workers (SNTE) established their position regarding the pension reform initiatives that will be presented by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador tomorrow, February 5.

Through a statement, the union organization pointed out that for decades, the wages of workers in the country have registered a serious deterioration, which has caused an increase in unemployment.

He added that in those years, salaries stopped fulfilling their main goal, which is to improve the living conditions of the working class and their families.

He recalled that in 2007 the ISSSTE Law was revised, in which he said, a cunning blow was inflicted on the unity pension scheme by establishing individual accounts, in which the regime the pension expectation is not less of 30% of the salary.

The above, he warned, constitutes another complaint against the acquired rights of workers to serve the State and an injustice for those who have dedicated their lives to work to build this country.

He added that at the beginning of the Fourth Transformation government, the SNTE asked President López Obrador to reform the ISSSTE Law, where he presented proposals with actuarial support, so that retired education workers receive decent pension.

“For these reasons, the SNTE widely recognizes the initiatives regarding salaries, pensions and retirement that the President of the Republic, Lic. Andrés Manuel López Obrador, will send to the Congress of the Union on February 5, with the aim of correcting -id of the injustices created by applying neoliberal policies and also guaranteeing that wage increases will actually improve the living conditions of the working class.”declared SNTE in the statement.

In that sense, he supports the objective proposed by the President of Mexico with the initiatives, because he wants to ensure that the workers can retire at 100 percent of their final salary and that the salary increase, by law, is higher than inflation.

He warned that he rejects any action that politicizes and compromises initiatives that benefit the people.

“We reject that, for electoral disputes or the defense of particular interests, the living conditions and rights of Mexicans are undermined”expressed the body of the union.

And he pointed out that the SNTE is made up of workers, citizens, teachers and union members; where he expressed his open support “these historic initiatives are in favor of the working class”.

And he pointed out:

“The Fourth Amendment is advancing, laying the foundations for a future with progress, prosperity, security, stability and, above all, with justice for the education workforce”.
