IU-Greens demands that the City Council take charge of the management of the childcare center of La Paca and that it amend "the irregularities committed" (04/12/2017)

The local, of municipal ownership, is being exploited with workers who pay their own insurance and who do not receive a salary.

There has been no administrative procedure to tender the contract for services by the City Council, and the center, which is no longer exclusively dedicated to childcare, does not have a firm authorization to change the use by the Government. regional, which invested 300,000 euros in an infrastructure that should be intended, in full, to the reconciliation of work and family life

The councilor of Izquierda Unida-Verdes, Gloria Martín, has demanded that the City Council of Lorca take charge "immediately" of the management of the Child Care Center of La Paca and that "regulate on the basis of the Law its operation "

In July 2014 the City Council outsourced this service through its concession to a company that terminated the contract in October of that same year, only one month after the inauguration of the center.

Since then, the nursery has been in operation without being put out to tender until it closed last summer.

For a few weeks he has resumed his activity through the promotion of an association whose board has confirmed to Martin that the workers "pay their own insurance and do not receive a salary", for which they recognize that this situation is unsustainable "in the short term".

Martín described as "very serious" that the City Council is consenting to flagrantly violate the rights of workers using a municipal property.

In addition, the mayor of IU-Greens states that there has been an administrative procedure for tendering the service contract and that this way of proceeding is "irregular" and "discharge in the good will of neighbors" the management of a service that must be governed by procedures "very scrupulous because we talk about the care of children from 0 to 3 years".

The place, which will no longer be exclusively dedicated to the care of children, but will combine these functions with others of the association, does not have a firm authorization to change use by the regional government, which invested 300,000 euros in an infrastructure to service, integrally, the reconciliation of work and family life.

The association, which is already dealing with the management of the center, does not have authorization for the provision of services of this nature.

For all this, the mayor of IU-Greens called the performance of the PP municipal team "reckless."

Martín explained that, when it was launched, the municipal government team of the PP publicized that the center, with a capacity for 61 children aged between zero and three years, would work from Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm , would have a dining room service and would promote the early teaching of English as a second language.

However, at this time these services are not guaranteed, nor is there even accreditation of the private entity that takes care of the minors.

For all this, the mayor of IU-Greens demanded that the Consistory itself be the one that manages the municipal center, guaranteeing its sustainability "without externalization or award to any private company".

Martin's proposal seeks to prevail "the public interest", as well as "put an end to the lack of guarantees in the provision of this service for the families of the Highlands of Lorca."

In addition, direct municipal management would have a positive effect on the creation of employment and would favor the economy of user families through the establishment of "as small as possible" public prices.

Martín recalled that the inhabitants of the councils pay the same taxes as those who reside in the urban area, however, they are forced to face a constant decrease in the supply of services.

For this reason, he once again insisted on the need for the City Council to become aware of this "terrible inequality" and to implement policies that prevent the disintegration of the social structure in these areas and stop the rural exodus, "respecting administrative procedures and labor legislation.
