IU-Green describes as the president's unpresentable the UCAM after grant for delivery of the degree of Medicine

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

The statements of Mr. Mendoza made a means of communication are, as Pujante, "offensive to the collective health of the region and collected statements that put into question, for free, the work of certain public sector professionals."

The irregular grant of Medicine at the UCAM is adorned says Pujante, by the alleged imposition of Mr. Mendoza of moral criteria to future physicians, under the entelechy of an alleged "divine justice", which attempts to go beyond the framework law established by our Constitution.

By the way, referring to concepts such as euthanasia or abortion, is launching a veiled accusation to public health professionals, who associated with the "culture of death".

Thus, Mr. Mendoza, exceeds the limit of respect for this profession.

It also notes Booming, "not telling the truth also concerning public aid granted to the university. Enough to remember the 135,000 m2 gratis by the city of Murcia to expand the facilities of the UCAM, in which the Lord has risen enclosure Mendoza his family home. Or the 600,000 € grant for local basketball team and 200,000 for women's football team, in addition to the free use of public sports facilities. "

"Perhaps the most brazen, as the Coordinator of IU-Greens, resulting from his claim that department heads who want to" cooperate and participate as teachers (…) and we have offered their services for students to conduct their practices. " It is a verifiable fact, as the dean himself, Mr. Lajara, is head of department of ophthalmology at the Hospital Morales Meseguer.

Mr. Ballesta, according Booming, "should react immediately to respond to this insolence and head off any unauthorized practice of responsible governance."

Finally, Representative of IU-Green in the Region of Murcia has this morning requested a hearing with the Minister of Universities, Mr. Ballesta, to explain in Parliament the granting of permission for the delivery of the degree in Medicine at UCAM.

Questions about the collection of payroll

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

The Federation of health and sanitary services in the Region of Murcia (FSS-RM) reports a climate of constant fear on salaries in order to pave the way to cuts

About to start the month of holiday par excellence, the autonomous community workers and therefore all citizens are in the newspaper "The Truth" a statement of Bernal counselor about the possibility of not charging the September payrolls.

Immediately afterwards the director of public service that qualifies is not so much the collection of the payroll of September unless the need for a plan to ensure the salaries regularly.

If it were not a serious issue that affects the quality of life of hundreds of Murcia, would be to burst into laughter, and with summer reruns.

These statements appear in a regular press even if you change the actor who expresses them.

Also occur frequently in areas of negotiation (so to speak as long as the Administration does not negotiate if not imposed) as a prelude to establishing unprecedented cuts to working conditions of public employees.

Since the FSS-RM is to denounce this policy in advance propaganda and fear against public employees.

CCOO knows firsthand the bad economic situation in the accounts of this community, but not an excuse to use these statements as a battering ram against the citizens.

There is no doubt that the Regional Executive has to make accounts, prioritize and manage in an adverse situation and complicated, but to terrorize hundreds of families with the possibility of not paying the mortgage next month or support his family is not the solution .

Public employees have long been demanding respect for their work and were not questioned as responsible for this crisis.

But the government maintains its strategy to focus the cuts on workers and on their incomes.

But more and more are joining protests since late 2010 is taking place CCOO and do not like our leaders.

Those responsible for managing this crisis does not want citizens protesting in the streets against an unjust and inequitable management and thus throw such statements.

Threaten the weak, those without the monthly fee can not continue to get a decent life and accepting the cuts.

According to the Secretary General of CCOO, Javier Lanza: "Given the prolonged crisis and the progressive erosion of purchasing power, many workers, before these veiled threats, accepted more willingly cuts while ensuring the collection of payroll" .

Since the FSS-RM is a double appeal, each Executive not to use its presence in the media as an instrument of fear and other public employees and citizens to continue to participate in the protests called for the August.

Every Wednesday at 11 hours and 15 minutes there will be protest rallies in the workplace of the SMS.
