The Bureau of Employment, a representative body of the social, political and economic sector for the implementation of municipal public employment policies, held its first meeting of this legislature this week. Mayor, Vicent Grimalt, the councilor for Economic Promotion, Paco Roselló and the councilor for Employment, Sandra Gertrudix reel in the news of this new stage.

Among the objectives set by the mayor are the promotion of joint actions of the public administration, business and the third sector to develop public employment policies; favor actions to reduce unemployment in the most vulnerable groups and promote that all business associations with agreements and / or contracts signed with the city council sign an ethical code with which they undertake to pay their staff the minimum city salary, in compliance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Another important novelty is the creation of new working groups, such as Social Responsibility, which will address issues such as ecological transition, sustainable development, gender perspective or ethical salary, which are added to Training Plans, Plans of employment, Entrepreneurship and company and the Promotion of proximity trade, as detailed by Councilwoman Sandra Gertrudix.

Gertrudix also announced the intention to modify the regulations of the Bureau to adjust it to reality “Since the current periodicity of the meetings, every 2 months, was not being met and is not operational”. After the meeting, it was agreed that the calls of the Employment Board will be held twice a year.

Of the entities and associations convened, representatives of AMADEM attended the Employment Board yesterday, Cedma, special education school Raquel Payá, Creama, which holds the technical Secretariat of the Mesa, Red Cross, Adventist Church of the 7. th day, the Citizen municipal groups, Compromís, PP i PSPV, Labora, the UGT union, technicians of the Department of Equality and Youth and the Adventist Agency for Development and Assistance Resources (ADRA).

    What they should also watch is all those illegitimate activities that are carried out by people who are collecting subsidies and apart work without contracts and without registering as self-employed.
    This has a negative impact on companies that legally quote everything related to their workers and is a fraud.
    That the submerged economy is controlled so much that more companies can compete complying with all the law.
