UGT, CCOO and CAVEMURcrean "platform by law dependency of the Region of Murcia"

Friday, April 30th, 2010

for its disastrous implementation in the community, despite having received 99 million euros since last 2005

At 1 April 2010 more than 44,000 applications are on the table, while Murcia 4000 died waiting for aid dependent

Since the adoption of the Law for Promotion of Personal Autonomy and Care for Dependent Persons-Law 39/2006 of December 14th, the Regional Government has demonstrated a low or no interest in its successful implementation.

This was the reason why trade unions UGT and CCOO in the Region of Murcia and the Confederation of Neighborhood Associations Murcia (CAVEMUR) decided to create, on 17 April, the Platform for Law Unit Murcia Region. "

A new body created with the aim of recognizing and supporting the demands of thousands of dependents Murcia, which have yet to see their rights fulfilled.

This has been presented at a press conference this morning the Secretary of Political and Social Protection Unit UGT Murcia, María Eugenia Pérez Parra, Secretary for Social Policy, Youth and Culture of CCOO in the Region of Murcia, María Dolores Flores Rubio, and the President of the Confederation of Neighborhood Associations Murcia (CAVEMUR), Leandro Martínez Sánchez.

"The region suspended on all state studies on Unit" began Pérez Parra, "more than three years have passed the Act and our region continues without substantive regulatory development, so its implementation is almost nil ".

Specifically, and so far only been published in the regional level, the Order of April 18, 2007 for the establishment of the Citizens' Participation Development Planning and Implementation of System of Care Murciano dependence and the Order of 9 April 2007 for the creation of the Regional Office of Information and Assistance and Disability Unit, said that as Secretary of Social Protection Policy Unit and the UGT Murcia, "does not provide in any case, a good service to citizens who are constantly communicating with your phone or directly to ring is left unaddressed. "

Of course, now there are three drafts of decrees made exclusively by the Ministry of Social Policy in the Region, UGT and CCOO excluding the participation of critical decisions for the society of Murcia, as yet had made a good number of proposals.

Thus, one of the decrees is about the co-payment, the other on the intensity of the protection, support and benefit levels and the third on the procedure of recognition of the dependence and the right to services and benefits.

"Decrees, on the other side," Perez said Parra, "do not know when it will go through the Governing Council, much less when they will see the light", adding that the third decree, the Regional Executive returns to give back to law "because it provides that benefits are given with a number of conditions and the region we find that, on April 1, 2010, receive financial benefit for family care for a total of 14,176 people, 26,103 are entitled to provision, ie that 84% are economic benefits. "

This point is vital because instead of encouraging new social services and generate direct jobs in the area of Unit, which is being done is to make aid benefits generic so the savings is guaranteed, the performance is much more cheap investment action in this matter.

Hence, as Parra Perez said, "this aid is creating thousands of homes that were taken as a financial aid of 519 euros for the family in this time of crisis, not a family caregiving, thereby leading to forms of undeclared work. "

Finally, Perez Parra also said the law sets a maximum of six months to receive benefits and there are now many people waiting more than two years, "and even giving rise to the beneficiaries who died without having received such as has occurred in the Region with more than 4,000 people. "

For his part, Secretary of Social Policy, Youth and Culture of CCOO of Murcia, María Dolores Rubio Flores recalled that the Law Unit was born as a result of the Social Dialogue Agreement prior to December 2005 reached the Government and social partners, "and predicted the creation of 300,000 direct jobs in the region which would translate into about 7,000" also pointing the "underground economy to be boosted by the incorrect allocation of benefits, all of economic and transferred directly to families in the form of financial aid, missing the chance to create jobs in a new field like this. "

Rubio Flores also stressed that "the Region of Murcia has received from the State General Administration of more than 99 million euros for the implementation of the Law Unit, where there is no knowledge of the management of this amount."

Hence the need to create this platform, which aims to involve all organizations and groups of people in a position to depdendencia, professional associations, social partners, neighborhood associations, families, carers or people in solidarity with this cause in order to claim public compliance with the Act in its entirety.

In charge of listing the Ten Commandments of shares in the new platform was the President of the Confederation of Neighborhood Associations Murcia (CAVEMUR), and is as follows:

1 .- publicly vindicate the implementation of the Act in its entirety.

2 .- To monitor its proper implementation in the Region of Murcia.

3 .- Demanding urgent regional policy development.

4 .- To reject any attempt to delay the timetable in the Act

5 .- Require the government in its responsibility, adequate funding and ensuring sufficient resources and social services.

6 .- Monitor and enforce legal deadlines in the ratings, and the regulatory requirements of performance and compatibility.

7 .- Report on the coverage, services and benefits offered by the Law for dependent persons, their families and carers, where appropriate.

8 .- Provide support to associations and their dependents, families and caregivers in the negotiations and demands linked to the effective implementation of the Law

9 .- Work with all citizen groups that exist in the Region of Murcia in defense of the Law

10 .- Perform information events, workshops, symposia and citizen mobilization in case of breach of the provisions in the Act

PSRM general secretary, Pedro Saura said, following a meeting with key players in the regional sector of Housing, that "our region is the most non-performing in terms of planning and housing policies that have raised in Spain in recent years. "

According to the socialist leader, "what we need in this region is an ambitious housing policy to boost the construction sector, which weighs heavily on our economy, and must have traveled from the point of view of short-term recovery to get out more quickly from the crisis. "

To dispose of the stock and rehabilitate

In this sense, Saura said that the first priority is "to dispose of the stock of vacant houses that are in the region, for which you need to connect the housing policy with the tourism policy."

"The Autonomous Community is implementing an ambitious policy to promote the Murcia region in national and international markets, as is done in other communities to get connected power brokers and housing demand with supply in Europe empty housing we have. "

Another priority, according to the head of the Socialists Murcia, is the rehabilitation of homes, but also involves the rehabilitation of neighborhoods, districts and historic areas of our cities.

"That is, an urban renewal to increase the quality of life of citizens."

Savings

Pedro Saura considers, moreover, Valcárcel should ask the savings banks a greater commitment to youth, families and advocates for housing finance.

"They could really use more funding, and the Autonomous Community can do much, because it has influence on the boxes, which provide 60 percent of industry funding."

Social housing

In addition, the general secretary proposed PSRM endorse the Autonomous Region, 50 percent of loans given in the Region for subsidized housing to families and advocates in the next 6 years.

"The other 50 percent and so is the central government."

Valcárcel, moon

Saura believes the information known today that the unemployment in our country is 20 percent, "we have to lead to reflection."

And he wondered "why in the Region of Murcia have 23 percent and are at the head of the unemployment rates of all communities, when two years ago we were below average?".

In this regard, he recalled that the current rate of unemployment in the region is far superior to that of the previous crisis years 93-94, in which our community was below the Spanish average. "

"So, Valcarcel, who was in opposition, blamed the PSOE's regional government that the unemployment rate and urged him to take action in a time when the Community had fewer powers.

Now he does not act, but has since gotten all the medals and for employment generation in the years of economic boom. "

"A Valcárcel globalization has caught on vacation, speculation, watching the moon of Valencia."

What needs to happen more in the Region of Murcia Valcárcel to take action?

Do we have to reach 25 percent of unemployment in order to give the hint? "He concluded.
