The Secretary for Equal Opportunities of the CGT and head of the Union of Road and Allied Workers (Stvyara), Graciela Aleñá, demanded on Friday that the authorities of the National Road Administration (DNV) “review vacant positions and their relationship with the female quota* and remarked that only 34 percent of positions are held by women.
In a letter addressed to the authorities of the public body, Aleñá demanded the review of national vacancies to meet the female quota determined by law, and assured that the union and the labor union will work this year so that the demand made to Vialidad “becomes the rule in state agencies.”
“The presentation was made at an appropriate time given the good predisposition to give space to the debate on the subject by Vialidad. The union is committed to gender policies and the eradication of gender and labor violence”, Aleñá said in a statement.
The claim was presented to the Human Resources Management of the DNV and seeks to reverse “what gender studies call ‘Glass roof‘, that is, the set of invisible rules and scripts that make it difficult for women to access to management roles or decision-making positions”, Aleñá explained in the letter.
The union demands that the selection modality to cover structural positions in the DNV contemplate female personnel who have the necessary requirements to meet “maximum performance and the best use of knowledge”.
A report prepared by the road union emphasized that of a total of 1,537 structural charges female occupation is 34 percent and male 66, and explained that the claim is also supported by administrative decision 1,744/20, which determined the guidelines for gender equality in state companies and societies, and in the Law 23,451 that approved the agreement on equal opportunities and treatment among all workers, pointed out the presentation.
The road union integrates the Argentine Confederation of Transport Workers (CATT) and the International Activity Federation (ITF).
