Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain (PortSEurope) December 3, 2018 – The president of Puertos del Estado, Ornella Chacón, accompanied by Salvador Capella, Director of the Port Authority of Las Palmas, and Marcial Morales Martín, president of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, has closed the XIII Technical Conference on Labour Relations and Human Resources that for two days have been held in Puerto del Rosario (Fuerteventura, ).
In a closing speech, Ornella Chacón has highlighted the necessary balance between business and society, for which the ports are making efforts aimed at improving adaptability and accessibility, energy efficiency, corporate and social responsibility. And, regarding its internal environment, Chacón said that the focus must be on improving equality, access and promotion in public employment, protection and family issues.
In order to carry out these objectives, according to Chacón, the organisation is working on different projects in which the participation of all ports is fundamental, an example of this is the renewal of the “Strategic Framework”, a fundamental piece to guide all fields of action towards a new port reality, as well as training and training in new knowledge needed in port operations.
Also, the president of Puertos del Estado has concluded, the same project of the III Collective Agreement (which has been a fundamental element of discussion during these days), aims to be a facilitator in improving the port as a “responsible company” and exemplary in its scope of influence. An example of this, among others, is the presence of working women in jobs traditionally of men in port authorities that, although still low, already has 18.8% women.
During the first session of the conference, various aspects related to the project of the III Collective Agreement of Puertos del Estado and port authorities were analyzed.
In the second session, after the presentation “Data protection in relation to the employment contract” presented by José Miguel Llamas Bravo de Laguna, a round table on the horizon of collective bargaining and points of interest in the field was discussed.
Puertos del Estado, the state-run ports system, includes 46 ports of general interest, managed by 28 port authorities, whose coordination and efficiency control corresponds to the government agency Puertos del Estado, a body answerable to the Ministry of Public Works that is responsible for implementing the government’s port policy.
