The former Minister of Labor and Social Security considered that “it is a very strong step that is not in line with reality.”

The presidential candidate for Independent Party (PI) and former Minister of Labor and Social Security, Pablo Mieres, questioned the claim of PIT-CNT before the International Labor Organization (ILO) due to changes in the regime of Medical licenses.

“Going to complain to the ILO is a very strong step and is not in line with reality,” questioned Mieres in dialogue with Telemundo, considering that “there is no impact that warrants a complaint” with the changes in the system, which establishes that public officials have the right to a maximum of nine business days paid leave for illness or accident.

“I can understand that the PIT-CNT “do not agree,” said the PI candidate, but he defended the new regime by considering it “reasonable and fair,” and then stated that “in no case does it violate rights from the workers”.

“What we did was modify a regime of medical certifications that for him public sector It was very different from the private sector, which did not even encourage avoiding abuse because there was no cost,” argued the former leader.

And he compared: “In the private sector, If a person is certified the first three days they do not charge and the following days they charge 70%. In the public sector, there was no type of impact.”

“Now the logic is that public workers maintain a slightly better regime than private workers, because they will have a bank of nine days per year where if those three days occur they can be paid the same, and then they receive 75% of the salary” , he concluded Mieres.

The claim of the PIT-CNT before the ILO

The representatives of the Confederation of Organizations of State Officials (COFE) who were part of the PIT-CNT delegation to the ILO denounced the new regime because they considered it violated 6 conventions of the organization.

In this way, the international entity can intercede in the conflict to try to achieve mediation between the State and the workers. Otherwise, the study of the complaint will be formalized through a committee created exclusively to deal with the claim, in which case a sanction could be applied against the State.
