Mediation by Ombudsman allows unblocking of crude oil pumping plant in Caucasia, Antioquia

The Bajo Cauca Antioqueno regional office of the ombudsman reached a series of agreements with the spokesmen of the protesters pushing the blockade of access to the crude oil pumping station and the Colombian pipeline, after more than four hours of meeting at the Chamber of Commerce of the municipality of Caucacia.

As a result, about 200 workers returned to their jobs at the pumping station, as their entry and exit remained closed for nearly three days.

One of the reasons for the blockade, according to a spokesman for the Social Struggle, was that the companies did not hire people from the region, rather they offered job opportunities to people from other parts of the country.

Among the main commitments agreed are:

• Review the recent procedures for admission of personnel in various companies and rectify the situation of irregularities.
• Allow the municipal administration and the ombudsman to supervise and control technical and theoretical tests for employment, at the request or wish of the leaders.
• Technically review the profile and experience requested for the link; Representatives of the protesters argued that it was practically impossible to comply with what was required.
• Review possible cases of vetoing certain people.
• Improvement of communication between workers and leaders with the human talent and administrative sectors of the Oleoducto de Colombia.

The mediation session was also attended by the Mayor of Caucasia and his Secretary of Government, the Provincial Attorney and his advisor, and the Commander of the Bajo Cauca Police District.

According to the blockade spokesman, at the end of next June there will be a new meeting to review compliance with the agreement and deal with technical issues, such as modification of profiles, direct manufacture at the plant of elements. , bringing prefabricated from another place, which reduces the possibility of more work activities and, as a result, according to them, less employment opportunities.
