Calpe town hall’s Equality Committee is launching its First Internal Equality Plan.
Presided by the Human Resources councillor, Ana Perles, the committee will be composed of representatives from each union as well as the Human Resources and Equality departments.
All public administrations are now obliged by Spain’s laws to possess an Equality Plan and demonstrate their commitment by complying with its principles. The document lists inequalities found amongst town hall staff following a diagnosis of the situation and a survey that was completed by all employees.
The findings will enable the Equality Committee to set goals and apply strategies designed to prevent potential gender discrimination and eliminate situations that were identified. The resulting document will need to be agreed by the Negotiating Table and later approved by a plenary council meeting.
The Plan will have a three-year validity period affecting the areas of human resources, professional promotion, training, balance of work and family life, prevention of sexual harassment, equality awareness and training and non-sexist communication.
