The general secretary of the PSOE of Cádiz and president of the provincial council, Irene García, has welcomed the cross-border agreement signed between Spain, the United Kingdom and Gibraltar that recognizes the labor rights of the ten thousand Spanish workers on the Rock.
García, who thanked Foreign Affairs for the work done, recalls that “it was a claim that we were able to make first-hand to the minister when she went to the province to meet with the mayors of the region, the president of the Commonwealth and myself as president of the Provincial Council to convey her commitment to work in this line ”.
Thus, the socialist leader celebrates the scope of this pact promoted by the Foreign Ministry, which has been working to safeguard the interests of those who enter Gibraltar every day to work and considers that “the Government has thus responded to the main concern generated in the Campo de Gibraltar for Brexit ”.
“It is a historic agreement that provides certainty at times that are already delicate for workers in general due to the pandemic and that gives peace of mind because this open three-way dialogue will continue to be active, guaranteeing permanent control over the situation,” he said. .
In the opinion of the Secretary General, “an agreement of these characteristics shows that the desire to continue deepening the good neighborly relations that have always existed between Gibraltar and Spain has allowed us to overcome all the difficulties that an international event as heartbreaking as it has entailed. It was the still incredible exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union ”. “You could say that here in the south, in our own way, we have managed to beat Brexit”, ditch.
