Those responsible for the National Federation of Self-Employed Workers Associations (ATA), the Union of Self-Employed Workers and Entrepreneurs Associations (UATAE) and the Union of Professionals and Self-Employed Workers (UPTA) participated in the videoconference meetings.
The head of Labor has transferred to the organizations of the self-employed who are "aware of the situation caused by the current pandemic in the group of self-employed and self-employed, who are experiencing great difficulties."
During these meetings, it was agreed that contacts be maintained every week to address the following phases of the Covid-19 health crisis and to develop a common agenda with the aim of promoting the activity of self-employed workers.
The two phases of the pandemic in the workplace were also addressed: the first with attenuated exceptionality and the second with attenuated normalization.
In this context, there has been a debate that will rise to the Council of Ministers on the situation of the most affected sectors and the possibility of lengthening and prolonging the Temporary Employment Regulation File (ERTE) due to force majeure in certain sectors. The possibility of studying new measures regarding productive ERTEs is also opened.
On the other hand, there was also a joint reflection on changes in self-employment, remote work, digitization as well as platforms to distribute among retail, among other issues.
