Under the argument that they have not physically received the collective bargaining agreement, which by law must grant them, the dissent of the Union of Telephone Operators of the Mexican Republic (STRM) requested the Federal Center for Labor Conciliation and Registration (CFCRL) an extension to carry out the legitimation process that implies the free, secret and direct vote of workers, including retirees.
In a letter sent to the director of the Center, Alfredo Domínguez Marrufo, the dissidents led by Eréndira Leyva Alcalá, detailed that the voting dates are from December 20 to 23, “which undermines a process of majority participation of active telephone operators and retired for being vacation dates, which would contribute much more probability of a fraud and the human right to vote ”.
They also argue that they cannot vote on a collective bargaining agreement that is still under review and for which many extensions of the strike have been granted, since the company has not agreed to maintain the clause regarding retirement.
“It would be voting on a contract already injured and on the verge of the extinction of some clauses, so the legitimation vote should be after the review.”
They also highlighted that the review of the collective bargaining agreement is every two years, “stipulated in the month of April, for this reason and with core issues on the table for our future and well-being, the legitimation should be extended.”
In addition to the above, they said that the logistics of the votes are not published, nor the name of the supervision, external count and viewers of the authorities for the process.
