IN a recent plenary meeting held by the Popular Party, the group has shown its solidarity with the ten nursery workers that have lost their jobs in the town.
The workers from the Children’s School Faro de Torrox lost their positions after the selling of the school to public management led to the dismissal of the women.
Since the announcement the dismissed workers have held regular protests, denouncing the situation, in which a total of 72 workers have lost their jobs from five nurseries in the region.
In a recent meeting, the PP of Torrox, including mayor, Oscar Media, have issued their solidarity with the group.
The party have also criticized its opposition for politicizing the situation, blaming the town council on the decision when in fact the council has had no authorisation in the actions.
“As a party, we show our support for the ten workers, but we are aware that the issue is in the courts and as public representatives will abide by their decision, although we have always shown to be on the side of the workers,” explained Medina.
The mayor closed the plenary session wishing “all the luck in this judicial process and we hope everything goes well for these Torroxeñas, because I can assure you that it has been the hardest sessions I’ve ever been part of.”
