Barça will present a “partial” ERTE to employees on Monday

first_imgBarcelona will deliver the documentation of the temporary business regulation file (ERTE) for non-sports employees to the Department of Treball of the Generalitat on Monday, April 6. This was announced to the members of the Committee by the head of human resources of the club in a telematic meeting called for this Friday.The novelty is that ERTE will not affect all workers, since the club has promised that “Those who are carrying out a 100% teleworking day” will be exempt. In fact, the Catalan entity openly talks about a “partial” ERTE.In any case, It will not be until Monday that the Company Committee receives the documentation of the employment regulation file and can make a complete assessment of the degree of affectation of the same in workers. The Company Committee wanted to recall in the statement the entity’s “commitment” that “the affected personnel have guaranteed 100% of their salary thanks to the additional contribution of the first-team soccer team”.It must be remembered that last Tuesday the club already delivered the file that affected the professional athletes of the sections, grassroots and women’s football, for which the majority saw their salaries reduced by 70%, less in grassroots football than the reduction was limited to 30%. The only ones exempt from ERTE were the first team players, who reached an agreement with the club to lower their salary by 70% while the state of alarm lasts, in addition to adding an additional 2% so that employees can receive 100% of your payroll during confinement.last_img read more

Costa Ricas Chinchilla condemns Nicaragua in UN speech over border dispute

first_imgDuring her final address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla lambasted Nicaragua over its repeated “aggression” against her country.The president expressed “outrage” at Nicaragua’s recent actions, including the dredging of two new canals in Costa Rican territory, its “flouting” of the International Court of Justice’s precautionary measures, and called for greater vigilance and harsher consequences for noncompliance with the world court’s orders.  “Costa Rica is a firm believer in international law in all it’s aspects but this attitude contrasts with the absolute disrespect of the government of Nicaragua of those elementary norms and conducts among nations,” Chinchilla said in her address in New York.“This disrespect has led to open and unacceptable aggressions against our country and to the flagrant disobedience of the orders of the court of The Hague,” she added.During her address, the president listed several recent aggressions against Costa Rica by its northern neighbor dating back to October 2010, when Nicaragua first “invaded” Isla Portillos and started dredging the uninhabited wetland preserve.Along with Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega’s words about “reclaiming” the northwestern Costa Rican province of Guanacaste and Nicaragua’s attempt to sell oil concessions in Costa Rican waters this summer, Chinchilla highlighted the Ortega government’s repeated violations of the world court’s precautionary measure for both sides to stay out of the disputed territory while the case pends.“This scorn demonstrates the urgent need to establish procedures to guarantee the respect of all decisions emanating from the court, including precautionary measures,” Chinchilla said, echoing the frustrations of many Ticos with the lack of consequences for Nicaragua’s alleged violations of court orders.On Monday, Costa Rica presented a letter to the International Court of Justice at The Hague requesting it take additional measures against Nicaragua. During her press conference Tuesday, Chinchilla mentioned that there were alternative measures available when a country does not follow the court’s rulings, including sanctions.The president noted that the current system does not provide for any follow-up after the court issues a precautionary measure to gauge compliance or levy consequences for noncompliance.Costa Rica is not alone in its complaints about Nicaragua’s aggressive push for more territory and a larger military. Panama and Costa Rica co-signed a letter from Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos Monday addressed to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon regarding the countries’ shared concern over Nicaragua’s “expansionist” policies. President Chinchilla has an appointment to meet with the secretary general on Friday, according to Casa Presidencial.“We feel vulnerable when there is a violation of the precautionary measures imposed by the International Court,” Chinchilla said, reinforcing Costa Rica’s position as an unarmed nation, “Nicaragua should not violate [these] measures with impunity.” Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more
