This week, there was a wave of mass layoffs in various sectors of the social apparatus, including the Ministry of the Interior headed by Andres Chadwick, the Ministry of Social Development headed by Alfredo Moreno and the Ministry of the General Secretariat of the Government headed by the Representative Cecilia Pérez, among other portfolios and services.
According to the calculations of various trade unions, which group public workers, so far 2,500 people restrict dismissal. Worse, the number of exceptions, which leaders call illegal, arbitrary and unreasonable, may increase, since it is estimated that Friday, November 30 is a fatal deadline for moving to the terms of the contract.
Of National Association of Tax Employees (ANEF)President Carlos Inzunza explained Counter that dismissals in the state administration are formulated in the continuity of “government policies of arbitrary, mass and illegal dismissals, the sole purpose of which is an open space in the state to use the public service as mining”.
He added: “The arguments used for layoffs are erroneous” and that there are “political components” to justify the departure of officials. ” He also said that they are coordinating the protests.
“There was a massive notice of dismissals in the Ministry of Education, also in the Ministry of Women, where highly qualified personnel were dismissed,” Insunza added.
This wave of layoffs focused on the same week when the government closed negotiations with the majority of the public sector table on the 2019 budget adjustment. Only one of the organizations that refused to sign the agreement was ANEF in the complaint by exontations that took place in the entire fiscal apparatus.
Exonation in La Moneda
In dialogue with Counter, president National Federation of Associations of Officials of the Ministry of the Interior (Phenamins), Esteban Tumba, is estimated at more than 400 layoffs of “officials” in the portfolio.
“We were told that the government installation process was established, it was concluded, and that the layoffs that may occur will be exceptional, and, well, it would be the opposite: we have governorates in which half of the workers are dismissed. the personal and reasons they use are inventions, ”he said.
"They came up with the fact that they have problems with the working environment, in circumstances where there is no evidence of this, there is a component of important political discrimination," explained Tumba, who did not rule out paralysis.
For his part, the national secretary of Fenaminsa Christian Inzunza stressed that “the deputy minister for crime prevention still has more than 40 dismissals, there are professionals who have been in service for 15 years, who are high places at the level of building safe places, no grounds. "
He also said that the most affected by the service is the office of the government of the interior, which brings together the governorship of Intendance. “We have records of 260 contract layoffs and 100 fees,” he said.
AT Segegob, cuts were also applied. According to sources in the ministry, on Monday about 30 people were turned off. The argument that would be given is the restructuring of units, but the ministry states that the explanation is not subject to reality. “These are all unreasonable dismissals,” they complain.

“We also declare that the process by which the evaluation of these partners is carried out is arbitrary and is not adjusted according to the current legal regulations, since the only recognized qualification process is that carried out by the qualification commission, which was concluded within a month. On this occasion, all dismissed the employees were rated on lists 1 and 2, which means they were classified as first-tier workers in the performance of their work, ”they added from the union.
