According to Calderón, they are going to fire some workers to hire other people and they are “skipping the procedures” in the collective agreement.

“There are people who have upt to 20 years here and everything had worked well. We have 6 years of no salary increases, the annuities paralyzed; The Attorney General’s office comes, gives the criteria and orders them to pay the annuities, but it turns out that they don’t want to. Of all public institutions, we are the only one in these conditions. Our homes are being affected. I have had my salary frozen for 6 years! (…) Now they come and want to say goodbye to us like nothing,” he added.
