After the criticism that emerged from the Central Trabajadori Unit and other multi-trade unions, the Government went out again to clarify doubts about the changes that compensation could be made for years of service or contract term.
Labor Minister Nicolás Monckeberg denied that this rule was eliminated or reduced, although he insisted on the need to implement a second proposal similar to a compensation for any event, in the next work reform project. The idea of the executive is that workers can decide between both options.
I want to be clear: it is NOT in the government's plan to terminate or reduce the current compensation for years of service. On the contrary, the proposals we have received from the Technical Councils focus on increasing and improving compensation alternatives.
