Díaz celebrates the CJEU ruling on interim workers and calls for a reform for the stability of public employment

MADRID, 6 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The second vice president of the Government and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, stated this Wednesday that she was "very happy" with the ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) on the abuse of interim workers in Spanish public administrations and has urged the application of the same reform in the public sector that has been carried out in the private sector to promote employment stability.

According to the TEU ruling, known on February 22, Spanish legislation does not adequately deter public administrations from the abuse of temporary contracts, which can lead to employing workers on a precarious basis "for years." One of the possible solutions that the Court pointed out was to make these workers permanent.

When asked about this ruling, Díaz, in statements to RNE reported by Europa Press, denounced that the level of temporary employment in public administrations in Spain exceeds 30%.

"It is an indignity that we have professionals like those who teach our sons and daughters, or those who take care of us, with job insecurity. It is not my responsibility and I am very sorry," said the minister, who added that "The same reform that we have made regarding stability in private companies must be carried out in public work."

"The CJEU has changed the criteria here on this matter, but it was already condemning our country, and I am very clear, the same thing that has been done in the private sphere, must be done in the public sphere," she insisted.
