99% of Movistar employees receive a higher salary to $ 463, said yesterday Juan Carlos Oleas, representative of telephone workers.He and a group of employees gathered on August 2, in the north of Quito, to listen to the weekly address of President Rafael Correa.
After knowing the opinion of the President they wanted to show how the company works. “We believe that this law, which is being processed, is a discriminatory law that affects all employees in the telecommunications sector,” said Oleas.
He clarified that profits they received in 2013 were about $ 13,000 for 1,975 families that are part of the company.
If it is approved the 12% for the State, the figure for profits would be reduced to $ 2,000. The workers will continue to watch the debate on the law because they consider their “rights have been violated.”
They will also carry their criteria to the National Assembly and the Ministry of Labour Relations to say why they feel affected. They will do it along with other telephone workers, they have dialogued with.
