The sports instructors will continue with their work in the schools but in the hourly conditions imposed by Conselleria
According to the limitations of the Ministry, these municipal staff can only attend the center during out-of-school time
The City Council will meet with workers and unions to see how their working day is organized
De Zárate attacks the PSOE for blaming the local government for a unilateral decision by Valencia
The spokesman for the government of Benidorm, José Ramón González de Zárate, said that "the City Council is working to adapt the work of municipal sports instructors to the conditions imposed by the Ministry of Education," which has translated that these staff "cannot attend the schools during school hours as they had been doing so far. " A requirement that the Department and the City Council transferred to the local educational community before the summer through the Municipal School Council.
De Zárate has pointed out that "since this limitation imposed by the Ministry for the new school year, a permanent and fluid dialogue has been maintained" so that the work of promoting sports practice that performs this municipal staff in the schools "do not be compromised". However, "the City Council has to obey this decision and then seek solutions, which is what we are doing."
In this regard, he added that "the City Council will guarantee sports teaching in non-teaching hours in all schools supported by public funds in Benidorm, regardless of whether they have a continuous work day or not." In addition, "and, as so far, the celebration of School Games and sports activity in all centers of the city are guaranteed."
Moreover, at the internal level, the councils of Sports, Education and Human Resources (HR) are working to "decide how to structure the provision of services by sports instructors out of school time." A restructuring that "will be addressed with the workers themselves and their union representatives".
De Zárate has confirmed that the spokesman of the socialist municipal group, Rubén Martínez, "is informed about the unilateral decision that the Conselleria has adopted; and it is two-way, because this area of Consellería is run by its party, the PSOE. " "The same PSOE," he said, "that is crushing Benidorm in education."
The spokesman of the government team has described as "regrettable" that "Rubén Martínez blames this government about what is happening with the sports instructors," as "so is his inability to demand that President, Xin Puig to comply with Benidorm." "What the spokesman of the PSOE would have to do is going to Valencia and urge the Generalitat to tender and carry out the major repairs needed by the school Vasco Núñez de Balboa, which he himself has a year and a half promising the center, teachers and AMPA. And by the way, he dusts off the banner he kept two and a half years ago and claims the works of IES Pere Mª Orts i Bosch, which President Puig said they would be finished in the first half of 2016.
