BILBAO, 20 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The general secretary of the CCOO, Unai Sordo, has been in favor of having specific casualties due to painful menstruation because they need to have "an automatic system". "If there is disabling pain to work, you don't have to work, of course," he said.
In statements to Radio Euskadi, collected by Europa Press, Sordo has indicated that the decision to regulate paid sick leave for disabling menstruations seemed "good" to him, and the controversy over the possible stigmatization of working women for this "a bit strange" question.
"It is not the first, second, third or fourth time that we all end up giving our opinion about a document, about a project that we literally have not read, so at first you play a little by ear and this gives rise to some misunderstandings ", has added.
In his opinion, it is "common sense that any pain that disqualifies one from the job can be covered through sick leave and that the specificity of menstrual pain requires a specific type of sick leave."
In this sense, he recalled that a sick leave due to temporary incapacity for use begins to exercise protection from the fourth day, "and it is evident that a woman who has menstrual pain that prevents her from working, needs the sick leave to have an automatic system" .
In any case, he has rejected that it is sick leave "for menstruating", as has been said by some sectors, but rather "for menstruating with disabling pain to work". "And if there is disabling pain to work, you don't have to work, of course," she concluded.
