Tomorrow will be fully fulfilled the linguistic requirement to access public positions. This means that, after their predictable approval, municipal workers will be required to prove their level of Valencian.
The proposal of PSPV-PSOE It will be taken in the morning and approved, unless something unexpected happens, thanks to the absolute majority held by the Socialists in the City Council.
The measure will not affect the places already covered, which will not be required. Only those who access new positions will be requested, either by new place or by internal promotion, starting next year.
