Monterrey, NL. The Superior Court of Justice of Nuevo León It requires having an efficient budget, to shore up the labor justice system with virtual courts, equipment, technology, and payroll for 120 employees in the first stage and a space of 2,000 square meters of offices, to start in May 2022.
This was commented by the president magistrate of the Superior Court of Justice of Nuevo León, José Arturo Salinas Garza, during a panel held at the Coparmex Nuevo León Labor Forum.
We are trying to present an efficient budget that leads us to quality, we have to raise labor justice to the standards of the state of Nuevo León, and that implies that labor justice could not be conceived if the virtual court did not exist, so This platform alone costs us enough millions of pesos ”, he explained.
Resources are also required for screen equipment and multimedia equipment in all courtrooms, meetings and training; security control equipment, CCTV, monitoring room, fiber optics, networks and communication, as well as 2,000 square meters for temporary offices, while the building that will house the Labor Court of Justice.
The above “implies the challenge of doing more with less, but with a large commitment that money is required, it is not a whim, it is a legal imperative so that labor disputes are resolved faster, that translates into trust for companies and job creation ”, he stressed.
There is a belief, he said, that as the Conciliation and Arbitration Board The budget that is destined to the operation of this agency is going to be transferred to the Judicial Power, this is not real, because the Conciliation Board has to continue operating until the transitional stage ends, to conclude all the files that are in process and Conciliation Centers will have to be created.
At the same time, “we will have to create Labor Courts, which will require the financial and human resources necessary to implement it regardless of the budget allocated to the current operation of the Board and the Conciliation Centers,” he said. Jose Arturo Salinas Garza.
He estimated that the Board of Conciliation and Arbitration processes 20,000 files of labor claims per year, 65% is resolved in the conciliation route and 35% is prosecuted, therefore it is estimated that there will be 7,000 files that are going to be prosecuted per year .
The personnel currently working in the Conciliation and Arbitration Board (which has four Special Boards) will not be transferred to the Judiciary, there will be an open call, where applicant lawyers, members of the Judicial Power and also personnel from this agency may participate, but they must be specialized in labor matters.
The Tribunal seeks to operate the Labor Justice System, through the judicial management system, similar to how it operates in criminal matters, where there are oral judges who have a courtroom, with teams of secretaries, clerks and actuaries.
“We are not going to create unitary courts, the judge with his secretaries, clerks and actuaries will have a management model where the judges have the possibility of conducting trials orally and have a pool of equipment that provides support in the management of sentences” .
“This gives us much efficiency, much shorter resolution times, avoids delays, if a judge becomes incapacitated, another judge can be assigned to resolve labor issues,” he concluded.
