London and Madrid agree on a system to protect cross-border workers in Gibraltar

In the midst of the impasse in the negotiations between Great Britain and the European Union, mainly due to the problems arising from the fishing agreement, London and Madrid announced on Monday a system so that the 15,000 cross-border workers who have employment in Gibraltar, are not deprived of their acquired rights.

Diplomatic representatives of Spain and the United Kingdom, responsible for the Government of Gibraltar and the Commonwealth of Municipalities of Campo de Gibraltar had been working on this for two years, when the memorandums of understanding between Spain and the United Kingdom on Gibraltar were signed, to mitigate the impact of Brexit, whose transitional period will end next December 31st.

The agreement affects 15,000 community citizens, including 10,000 Spaniards, who have to cross the Gate daily to go to their jobs on the Rock and who, through this procedure, will be able to make their rights effective as of January 1 2021. The main problem lies in some other thousands of unquantified people who live from the underground economy and not precisely the illicit ones, but in domestic service, the hotel industry and some sectors around which the undocumented subsist.

According to information released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, EU and Cooperation, this solution is related to the withdrawal agreement that guaranteed the maintenance of all labor rights enjoyed by cross-border workers before Brexit under Union law Europe. The specific Protocol on Gibraltar was intended to “reinforce this aspect”.

Precisely this Tuesday, the Government of Gibraltar has published a new Technical Note of which it has been issuing as a roadmap to follow after Brexit in aspects that can affect daily life, work and business, in the Rock. This agreement on the rights accumulated by workers, unemployed or entrepreneurs, who come from the EU, EEA (European Economic Area, which includes Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and Switzerland who work in Gibraltar and live in Spain.

Back and forth

The Withdrawal Agreement signed by the United Kingdom and the European Union – recalls an official note from the Gibraltarian authorities – entered into force in February this year and establishes the rights that British citizens, including Gibraltarians, would retain, working on the other side from the border, in the European Union, and EU citizens working in the UK and Gibraltar. This reciprocity also extends to citizens of the EEA and Switzerland.

“The latest guide clearly states that only people registered as cross-border workers as of December 31, 2020, will be able to exercise their rights under the Withdrawal Agreement. A mechanism is also established so that people can check if they are qualified as such as of December 1, 2020, ”says the Government of Gibraltar, which is going to launch a web page where said registration can be made and that will be operational that day through the link frontierworkers.egov.gi

Cross-border workers may request a letter from the Gibraltarian government to identify them as such. However, “in those cases where the status of a person as a cross-border worker in Gibraltar is certified by inclusion in the electronic list maintained by the Gibraltar Employment Department, it will not be mandatory for cross-border workers to obtain a copy of said letter. ”.

Until now, official attempts to carry out a realistic census of these workers have barely had the collaboration of the interested parties themselves, paradoxically fearful that such a measure could adversely affect them or be simply useless.

It is, however, a reciprocal measure between the parties, so it also affects Gibraltarians and other British citizens who reside in Gibraltar but work in Spain and to whom the executive of Fabian Picardo recommends that they familiarize themselves with the registration procedures on this side of the border, so that they can enforce that same agreement.

Reaching the agreement has not been easy and contacts between the parties, even unofficial ones, have abounded. The Foreign Ministry recalled that, on the Spanish side, the Association of Municipalities of Campo de Gibraltar, the Junta de Andalucía and the General State Administration have participated in the meetings. Yesterday, Juan Franco, Mayor of La Línea, visited Fabian Picardo at the Gibraltar Government headquarters to discuss these and other issues. Since the entry into force of the Withdrawal Agreement, as pointed out by Foreign Affairs, “the three administrations have negotiated how to apply these rights to those who enter Gibraltar every day to work.” That was the purpose, the memorandum on Citizen Rights, which motivated a meeting in La Línea on October 21, which expanded the contents of two other previous meetings since the lack of definition.

Fluency at the border

The calendar to follow is through the entry into operation of said website and, as of January 1, 2021 and only at the request of the interested parties, if they wish, they may request a letter from the Gibraltar authorities certifying their employment status. In the event that a worker who is outside that registry may present his case to the Gibraltarian authorities in order to find a possible solution. If one of the critical points of the current negotiations consists of the fluidity of the border, for now it has been achieved that cross-border workers will be able to prove their identity at any time and when entering Gibraltar with their passport and ID card from Spain or another country of the European Union.

According to the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “the parties will continue to meet to analyze any issue that may arise in coordination with the European Commission as guardian of the Treaties of the European Union and their correct application.”

In the case of Gibraltar, cross-border workers who appear as such in said registry, “may, after December 31, 2020, continue to work in Gibraltar and may benefit from the same community rights that they currently enjoy.” For Gibraltar to consider them as cross-border workers covered by the agreement, they must legally work in Gibraltar with an employment contract or self-employed workers who carry out a legal activity in Gibraltar, as the scope of their activity, for which “it will be necessary that the center of interest in the activities of the self-employed worker is located in Gibraltar and is subject to Gibraltar social security legislation ”.

The agreement will also cover people who, having worked for another person or as self-employed in Gibraltar, may retain their status as cross-border workers, as long as the cessation of their activity is related to temporary inability to work as a result of illness or accident, pregnancy or Birth; or they are in a situation of involuntary unemployment, provided that they are registered as such after having enjoyed employment in the Rock, at least for one year. Also those unemployed who have worked at La Roca for less than a year, but may only maintain their status as cross-border workers for a maximum of six months. Under this umbrella also covers the unemployed who are in training or those who have decided to leave their job to improve their training in the labor branch in which they had been hired.

“Cross-border workers covered by the Withdrawal Agreement will be able, beyond December 31, 2020, to continue working in Gibraltar and will be able to benefit from the same community rights that they currently enjoy,” said document states. In practice, this means that skilled cross-border workers will continue to have the same EU-based labor rights that they currently enjoy. This includes the right to non-discrimination, the right to start an activity in Gibraltar and the right to social and tax benefits. Therefore, for example, qualified cross-border workers will maintain the same conditions that have existed until now with regard to unemployment benefits ”.

At the same time, unemployed persons may find protection in said agreement “when, 12 months after leaving work and thereafter, they provide proof that they continue to seek employment or self-employment in Gibraltar”.

Grace period

In fact, as specified in the Note, the Government of Gibraltar already has a good part of this data, both with regard to cross-border workers and unemployment, through official records.

“Therefore, the Government already has a list of all cross-border workers. The people who will be protected by the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement are those whose names appear on said list as of December 31, 2020 ”.

“Once it is operational, the platform will allow the introduction of identifying details of a person to confirm whether or not it is“ in process ”to be considered a person covered by the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement as of December 31, 2020. As of January 1, 2021, cross-border workers who perform a search on the online platform will receive a final confirmation regarding their status, or not, as cross-border workers covered by the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement. This information will be provided by an automatic response. Independently, as of January 1, 2021, cross-border workers will also have the possibility to contact the Employment Department (Department of Employment) from Gibraltar to obtain a letter certifying that they are cross-border workers covered by the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement ”.

What will happen to those workers who cannot prove said condition? “Means will be provided so that those people who the system indicates that they are not cross-border workers covered by the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, can contact the relevant government departments with the aim of correcting their status if they believe they meet the necessary conditions – they report the Gibraltarian authorities. Cross-border workers may, beyond December 31, 2020, appeal a decision adopted by the Government that they consider to be erroneous ”.

“As in the UK, during a grace period from January 1, 2021 to July 1, 2021, the Government of Gibraltar will not impose any new entry conditions for citizens of the EU, EEA or Switzerland (including cross-border workers) can enter Gibraltar. The Government will keep this position under constant review, especially given the current negotiations to establish a new border fluidity regime with the EU ”.

The ‘Barrios por el clima’ project will raise awareness among the citizens of Cordoba about the consequences of climate change

The president of Emacsa, Ramón Díaz-Castellanos, and the president of the Federation of Al-Zahara Neighborhood Associations, Antonio Toledano, signed a framework agreement this morning to promote the ‘Neighborhoods for Climate’ Project, which is being developed by the federation.

The purpose of this agreement is to establish the lines of collaboration to carry out awareness and sensitization activities through the neighborhood movement, in which the consequences of climate change are addressed and strategies are established to curb its effects.

Through this agreement a joint collaboration is established, by virtue of which Emacsa will provide didactic or awareness-raising material, in addition to being present with speakers at public events related to the integral water cycle, where Emacsa can contribute its specific knowledge and contribute to public awareness.

Emacsa has among its functions common objectives to those proposed by ‘Barrios por el clima’, among which its educational programs stand out, generating awareness among schoolchildren for the proper use of water, as a vital and limited resource, as well as sanitation networks, in order to return water to nature in optimal condition after use, thus contributing to the health of the planet.

The Cristianos y Cristianas por el Clima initiative is born in Córdoba

Aware that the global warming of the planet has gone from being a warning or a concern restricted to the scientific community and the environmental movement to being a concern strongly installed in the public conscience, the initiative Cristianos y Cristianas por el Clima Córdoba ( CxCC).

The climate awareness process that has promoted this initiative has been possible thanks to the insistence and rigor with which the scientific community is presenting its evaluations and has been especially stimulated by the publication in May 2015 of the Pope’s Encyclical Francisco ‘Laudato Yes. On the care of the Common Home ‘, an extremely valuable document that describes “what is happening to our house”, details “the human root of the ecological crisis”, develops in a chapter the vision of the Holy Father on “an ecology comprehensive “and delves into the” Gospel of creation “, explaining how respect for Nature and life is present in all its expressions in biblical stories and how the message of the harmony of all creation is present in each creature.

CxCC is not an organization, platform or coordinator, but a meeting point in which to bring together the entire Christian community to, from communion and fraternity, recognize that “climate change is a global problem with serious environmental and social dimensions. , economic, distributive and political, and poses one of the main current challenges for humanity “, particularly for impoverished countries,” particularly affected by phenomena related to warming, and their livelihoods depend heavily on natural reserves and ecosystem services such as agriculture, fisheries and forest resources, “according to the Papal Encyclical.

The people who participate in this initiative are aware that the path will not be easy, the magnitude of the effort that must be made is enormous, since it involves a change from the current energy model, based on fossil fuels, to an energy model based in renewable energies. This will necessarily mean a reduction in the amount of available energy and will force a review of the dominant consumption model: “Buying is always a moral act, and not just an economic one.”

But “it is not necessary to think that these efforts will not change the world. Those actions spill a good in society that always produces fruits beyond what can be verified, because they provoke within this earth a good that always tends to spread, sometimes invisibly “, in the words of the Pope.

“We understand that the time has come for all people and all social, economic, political, union, cultural groups and agents present in the city to take a step forward and acquire a firm commitment to preserve a life that deserves to be lived by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, “says the group. In this sense, CxCC “we applaud the institutional commitment acquired by all the municipal groups present in the Plenary of the Córdoba City Council by approving on November 14, 2019 the Declaration of Climate Emergency in the city unanimously, presented by Podemos Córdoba .

In order to contribute to this process of awareness and commitment to the adoption of measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions “we have met and wanted to present ourselves to the public, under the CxCC umbrella, to proclaim that Sister Earth “cries out for the damage that we cause her because of the irresponsible use and abuse of the goods that God has placed in her.” And therefore, the idea is to join a movement that is opening a gap between different groups in the city that have manifested their climate commitment to humanity and its creatures.

In addition to prompting other Christian groups in Córdoba to adhere, because “a crime against nature is a crime against ourselves and a sin against God.”

In this context, Christians in the city of Córdoba “understand that it is necessary to respond to this’ urgent challenge of protecting our common home, which includes the concern of uniting the entire human family in the search for a sustainable and integral development. ‘.

The organizations that participate in this initiative are Acción Católica Obrera (ACO), Hermandad Obrera de Acción Católica (HOAC), Juventud Obrera Cristiana (JOC), Christian Life Communities (CVX), Diocesan Migration Delegation of Córdoba, Philippine Religious Community of Córdoba, Brotherhoods of Labor, Community of Religious Slaves of the Sacred Heart, Parish of the Holy Margaritas, Parish of Our Lady of Linares de la Fuensanta, Parish of Asunción and San Roque de Encinarejo, Parish of Our Lady of Carmen de Villarrubia, Parish of Santo Cristo de los Mochos, San Acisclo de Valdeolleros Parish and San Ignacio de Loyola Parish in the Guadalquivir neighborhood.
