The strike of technicians of the public theaters adds a new chapter with the cancellation of the premiere, scheduled for yesterday afternoon, the entertainment dedicated to the centenary of Antonio Ruiz Soler in charge of the National Ballet of Spain (BNE) at the Royal Theater.
Sources of the BNE assured this newspaper that the working day during the last essay yesterday was carried out with "absolute normality" and did not discard 100% that the curtain could be raised if the number and charges of the undersigned of the Partial couple of two hours (between 18.30 and 20.30) did not prevent the development of the show, which began at 7:30 p.m. In the end, the premiere had to be postponed today.
The origins of the conflict go back to when, in March 2019, the administration and the unions UGT, CSIF and CC.OO approved the IV Unique Convention, which established a new professional classification comparable to European degrees and collected a remuneration increase to alleviate The salary gap between the work staff and the official. However, on July 31, a public offer of 57 seats of technical theater staff with superior degree requirements were announced that, in practice, left many workers from the INAEM with a long experience behind their back and training In non-approved schools with FP courses.
According to the unions, this last reform for access to oppositions not only "deliberately ignores the agreements and conditions established in the IV Sole Convention" but leaves in the "labor station" half a thousand workers who could lose their work. In fact, the only specific training that exists in Spain, taught by the Ministry of Culture itself in three centers in Madrid, Barcelona and Granada, does not allow access to the public contest. Hence, since the INAEM has been stationed for a new five-year moratorium on the demand of the specialty.
The representatives of UGT and CSIF have defended at all times the path of negotiation or, if necessary, judicial action against the call for the unemployment carried out by working solidarity. "Although this union does not have a recognition and a very large representativeness, the important thing is that it points out a problem that exists," said Miquel Iceta, Minister of Culture. "We will find a solution through the negotiation with the INAEM so that, in the absence of a vocational training law that allows homologous titles, it can be realized."Updated Date: 15 October 2021, 11:29
