The salary increase according to production rates in the business sector is one of the issues now in the direction of the Central de Trabajadores de Cuba (CTC) in Holguin.
George Batista, general secretary of the organization in this body, meant that the current implementation of Resolution 17 is merely the political will of the government to meet the satisfaction of its workers in response to the guidelines set in 2011.
He pointed out that in the eastern territory the new legislation is implemented in some 120 of the 127 existing entities, which include a higher human capital of 92 thousand workers.
The "17" as it is known in the labor world, is the form of payment by results that is approved annually in the process of developing the plan by the presidents or directors of the top organizations in business management, company directors which are subordinated directly to an organ or body or national body and directors of companies that apply the business improvement, by agreement with the union at the appropriate level.
Many are still the dissatisfactions generated by the resolution, a situation that is far from related to the purpose for which it was developed focusing its sights on the interpretive freedom that make those responsible for its execution in the base.
Although in Holguin we have increased salary by more than 200 pesos , this is not visible to most workers, because the economy must be carried at pencil point every day, just so you really know how much was spent or earned, said Elizabeth Font union leader of fisheries and food.
She insisted that not all institutions have the right technological infrastructure to speed up production, which is detrimental to the financial remuneration of their employees.
While it is true that Resolution 17 can be a way for everyone to receive revenue for their contributions, it is necessary to analyze its proper implementation, it is not right that the salary of a worker is lowered for situations outside his realm such as the late entry of raw materials.
