In her speech, Yolanda Díaz has bet, according to Europa Press, to “broaden the gaze” in the world of work and has warned that the main problem in the world is “inequality and in Spain precariousness”. “The temporality is practically the same from the first democratic government until today, which reaches 26%. Nothing has been done [para corregirlo] because this has been the model that has been defended, “he lamented. In this context, he stressed that” it is possible “to change the model of labor relations, which is” thought from parameters of temporality and precariousness “, and has opted to approximate to some of the models that already exist in the European Union.

As he has defended, to materialize it, the ordinary contract must be the “stable and indefinite” contract. “This is what we are going to do. Labor relations must be stable to have stable lives. Having 13% of poor workers speaks very badly of us,” he denounced. Díaz has argued that this does not mean that there are no temporary contracts, but it has influenced that these contracts have to “attend to a cause and, if it is not fulfilled, it will have consequences.”

In this way, he has affirmed that Spain is on the way to “a model in which the contract is stable” and in which it is possible to have a temporary contract, but which responds to a cause. In his opinion, the new regulations will allow a reduction of temporary employment in “several points”, which will allow to have a “model of labor relations based on job stability”. After defending that it is necessary to democratize “labor relations and Spanish companies”, the vice president also called on workers to “join” unions and thus defend “their rights collectively.” “Trade unionism must be defended to strengthen democracy. We need workers to be organized and trade unionism to be strong. It is not by chance that the extreme right is fighting trade unionism,” he warned.
