‘RUGERevolución Ugetista Castilla y León’ will channel the agenda that the group designs in the Community
UGT in the Community is committed to giving a voice to young people in the organization with its own “space” under the area ‘RUGERevolución Ugetista Castilla y León’, which aims to become a “benchmark for the defense of labor rights” of the group.
The executive secretary of UGTCyL, Sonia González; the spokesperson for RUGERevolución Ugetista state, Eduardo Magaldi, and the councilor for Social Services and community mediation of the Valladolid City Council, Rafaela Romero, presented this initiative to the press today, within the framework of the El Callejón Shelter in the capital of Pisuerga.
Sonia González explained that this new space aims for the young union delegates to be able to work to improve employment and end the precariousness of their colleagues so that they can become emancipated. The union official clarified that this area was born with 25 members, three in the executive, and hoped that it will add more and more participants.
Eduardo Magaldi commented that this initiative was born three years ago at the state level, to promote youth participation in an organization, which structured its actions in this matter through a youth department, which “did not bring young people together around the union as a collective ». “We had to bring our own demands that affect us as young people,” he said.
Magaldi explained that in these three years they have achieved “great successes” through RUGERevolución, such as the ‘riders’ law, “a pioneer throughout the world” or the government’s commitment to regulating the status of unpaid internships for scholarship holders , to stop the “fraud” they suffered.
“We have managed to put the agenda of young people and schedule our own reinvigoration, grow and achieve success,” he said, commenting that now they are spreading through the territories, such as Castilla y León, so that “the young people from here who are those who understand their problems, reach their own achievements to improve ».
Rafaela Romero congratulated the union for this initiative to involve young people, when one of the main problems it faces is internal renewal. The councilor pointed out as the two great trade union challenges the incorporation of young people and women, so that the organization can “conquer” the new work spaces that will be generated in the future in a world that changes at great speed, such as teleworking.
