Workers' Commissions denounces Jácome for pushing a trade unionist

Workers' Commissions have filed a complaint against the mayor of Orense, Gonzalo Pérez Jácome, for pushing a trade unionist who was demonstrating at the gates of the Consistory on May 3 during a strike in the bus service. For the union, the episode, which was recorded on video and broadcast on social networks, constitutes a possible "mistreatment of work", in addition to a "violation of the union rights of the victim" and an "action contrary to the free exercise of the right on strike."

That day, when a group of workers from the bus service was gathering at the gates of the town hall, Jácome left the building to mediate with the workers. At the moment in which the trade unionist spoke through the megaphone a short distance from the mayor, and she offered it to him so that he could address the concentrated people, Jácome pushed her wife.

Then, he justified what he had done by accusing the trade unionist of "acoustic aggression". The incident generated a new political controversy in the city and led to the approval of a motion – thanks to the abstention of the PP, government partners of the mayor's party – calling for Jácome's resignation.

The complaint, according to Ep, calls for the Orense courts to investigate the facts to determine if there could have been a crime. "A person who acts in this way cannot continue in public office, nor does Orense deserve to appear in the media throughout the State because of such unfortunate events," argues the union. Workers' Commissions also urges the new president of the Xunta and next leader of the Galician PP, Alfonso Rueda, to "make a decision" about the future of Orense.

The insistence to the new Galician president to put a solution in the controversial mayor's office also came from the socialist ranks. The leader of the PSdeG, Valentín González Formoso, sent a letter to Rueda in which he urges a meeting between socialists and popular people to resolve "the institutional crisis" that Orense is experiencing with Jácome. "The PP has the maximum responsibility since, with seven councilors, it maintains its support for the mayor of the city and is part of his government," the letter recalls.
