The second vice president and minister of Social Rights and Agenda 2030, Pablo Iglesias, and the Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, confirmed Friday to the union representatives of farmworkers in Andalusia and Extremadura that the Government will reduce 35 to 20 the necessary steps to receive the agricultural subsidy.
This was highlighted by the general secretary of CCOO Extremadura, Encarna Chacón, in a statement to the press after meeting with Iglesias and Díaz, which he described as “very satisfactory.”
In addition, he stressed that the meeting has agreed to create a specific table to address the real problem of workers in the agricultural sector that will be launched soon.
In this regard, Chacón denounced that “working conditions are very bad”, especially in aspects related to occupational health and contract stability. Therefore, he argued that “it is time to put measures in place so that the figure of the discontinuous permanent worker regulates labor relations in the sector.”
On the other hand, he announced that the Ministry of Labor will launch a specific campaign from the Labor Inspectorate to detect irregularities related to the underground economy. “It is an opportunity to listen to all parties and see how the conditions of workers are improved because if we do not bet on decent working conditions, Spain empties,” concluded Chacon. .
