21.6% of public employees are temporary. Many of them spend five years to consolidate a fixed place. They demand more oppositions and the comparison with the rest of officials in a great march that is celebrated today in Madrid
The interim rebels, once again, against the situation of temporality that they have suffered for decades, which has even led them to retire without reaching the longed for fixed place. The Temporary and Interim Platform (PI) is manifested today in Madrid against the abuse of temporary employment in the sector, with more than 800,000 temporary public employees. From the Plaza de Cibeles to Sol, the interim demand a greater call for public employment as well as temporary measures that equate them to fixed public employees. The decision of the Supreme to endorse the Public Employment Offer (OPE) for 2019 and dismiss the request of the National Association of Interim and Labor, which requested precautionary measures, has further warmed the environment of a group that is considered discriminated against and a species of “outcast” caste within the almost 2.6 million civil servants in Spain among the different administrations. According to the statistical data of the Ministry of Territorial Policy and Public Function, 21.6% of all civil servants are interim or temporary staff. Although the increase of 17,187 public employees registered last July, the latest figure available to the Government, is a first step in the regularization of the situation of the interim, they consider it to be laughable in the face of the 800,000 temporary jobs in the administrations.
