Associations of public servants and retirees will appeal for the repeal of Agreement 94 of the Ministry of Labor – issued last May 22, which modified the conditions for the payment of compensation for the retirement of public workers. The Network of Teachers and the Coordinator of Retired Teachers of Ecuador will raise the issue to the authorities.
According to the agreement, the State will not be obliged to pay the compensation when the public servants with life appointments, under 70, resign their positions to avail themselves of voluntary retirement, without the respective planning and budgetary availability. Nelly Miño, sub-coordinator of the Teacher Network, said that the implementation of Agreement 94 meant a “setback” for the benefits of retirees. (I)
