Unions tell business, forget push to nix severance pay
Santo Domingo.- Unions Federation (CNUS) president Rafael (Pepe) Abreu, on Sun. said the issue of the Labor Code reform should be shelved because it has “no way out.”
Abreu said the topic should archived because five years of talks have shown that labor and management won’t agree on the main topic: severance pay, which was approved in 1964.
“Someday severance pay will cease to exist but that will depend on the development of social security. Meanwhile we cannot give up on that because it’s a necessity, ” Abreu told Listin Diario.
