He presented his resignation to the dialogue on the bases of the contests for the stabilization of the Administration's personnel for being an affected party

The negotiation of the bases of the calls to stabilize the temporary public employees of the autonomous community will continue without the general director of Public Function,
Montserrat Garcia, who submitted his abstention to the deputy council as he considered himself an affected party.

Specifically, it is due to their status as indefinite labor personnel, which was decreed by sentence after remaining three years without their place being offered. A situation that
in his case it has been extended twenty years and that also affects many of the Administration workers whom the State is now trying to stabilize to reduce excessive temporary work.

The appointment of García -who came to replace
Laura Martin– It already surprised both those affected by the fraud of the law and the unions at the time. It was in September of last year, after two months of frustrated attempts by the council to fill the vacancy, and at one of the momentous moments of the conflict: on the one hand, the strike committee urged to resume dialogue on the
agreement signed in April with the regional government and, on the other, the negotiation at state level seemed to take steps in parallel.

This category represents 90% of the places offered by the Canarian general administration

Apart from this, his position was key to the necessary reorganization proposed by the Executive in order to face the arrival of Next Generation funds. Precisely, one of the strike committee's complaints pointed to the fact that with the new hires
interims would continue to increase.

The general director, aware of this context, relies on article 23.2 of Law 40/2015 of the Legal Regime of the Public Sector to refrain from participating, justifying herself in a "personal interest in the matter", as published in the Official Gazette of the Canary Islands (BOC).

Next date: December

Meanwhile, the negotiation with the unions slows down in the summer due to the decrease in activity in the administrations. The last meetings held this month were not very fruitful, say the groups, due to the "great lack of coordination".

After announcing the respective extraordinary Public Employment Offers (OEP) in June, now the focus is on
build common ground and in December as the maximum period for its publication, as established by law 20/2021.

In total, the Canary Islands
will offer around 30,000 places, which represents 28.5% of the 104,600 troops that as of January this year were working in the Canarian administrations. According to the register of the Ministry of Territorial Policy, some 34,400 in local entities – councils and municipalities – and just over 70,600 in the regional administration.

With regard to the general administration, some 3,500 places will be offered, of which 90% correspond to long-term staff. Their main difference from civil servants is that they are based on
a contract governed by labor law and, therefore, subject to collective agreements. This implies, on the one hand, that they can be fired and, on the other, that in order to be promoted they must also go through a selective process.
