Specifically, the first deputy mayor has referred to an agreement reached by the former CEO of the Popular Party, Juan Francisco Martínez Carrasco, to apply a salary increase to ORA workers that "exceeds legal limits"
The Councilor for Public Companies of the City of Lorca, Francisco Morales, has denounced this morning another "inefficient management of the previous government team of the Popular Party, in this case, within the Municipal Cleaning Company, Limusa."
The mayor of Public Companies has referred to an agreement signed by the former CEO of the PP, Juan Francisco Martínez Carrasco, with workers in the transport section;
an agreement that does not conform to the legality in response to the opinion of the legal labor services of Limusa, which state that "said salary increase does not apply since this would exceed the legal limit of personnel expenditure".
Morales has determined that "said petition had been claimed by the workers since 2018 and until May 21, 2019, 1 year later and 5 days before the municipal elections, was not signed, data that highlights the possible electoral interest of the previous Councilor Delegate of the Popular Party other than the general interest of the workers.Now, these workers have realized that this increase cannot be originated, not because the current government team does not want to, but because it has not been established according to the legal channels timely, aspect that we have made known to the employees themselves and the Company Committee. "
The councilor explained that this agreement includes "a demand that workers have been making since 2018 and those who were told until the time of the signature that was being studied by the City Council Intervention, an aspect that we denied since said Service had no record of this matter. "
The mayor of Public Companies has highlighted "the predisposition of Limusa workers, involved with the company, wanting to work and help, but who consider certain working conditions to be improved, and therefore we will work within the framework of the law to help them" .
In addition, he thanked "the understanding and support of the workers themselves to resolve this situation that, not being the fault of the new government team, have the right to claim and to which we will give a solution as soon as possible."
The vice mayor has reiterated that work will be carried out under criteria of efficiency, transparency, honesty and honesty, "not returning to give cases such as the disappearance of the 800 exams of the public job offer of Limusa, something that instead has been given with the Popular Party and its CEO, Juan Francisco Martínez Carrasco, at the head. "
Morales has also referred to the criticisms expressed by the councilor of the PP, Juan Francisco Martínez Carrasco, towards his person, in relation to which he said that "we are not going to waste the valuable time we have to invest in solving the problems that have left the Popular Party in Lorca to respond to these criticisms, of which both Lorca and the workers of the company are fed up, because our main objective is to improve the lives of Lorca and nothing more. "
In addition, he said that "in spite of everything, we are working to guarantee the coverage of the needs of our neighbors until the end of the year, all with an exhausted budget, with only 10% available, and with six long months ahead Also, we are receiving criticism that Lorca is dirty, but this is not the responsibility of the current government team, but that it is due to poor planning of the necessary personnel and the summer vacations granted by the former CEO of the PP, Juan Francisco Martínez Carrasco, stating the workers themselves who cannot cope with the workload due to poor inherited management.
