SANTO DOMINGO.- Hundreds of former employees of the former Dominican Institute of Social Security (IDSS) continue to wait for their pension or payment of labor benefits, after being released from the different entities to which they were transferred, when in 2019 it was dissolved.
This situation occurred despite the fact that Law 397-19, which creates the Dominican Institute for the Prevention and Protection of Occupational Risks (Idoppril) and dissolves the IDSS, establishes in its article 44 the relocation of these workers in the different dependencies of the State.
This was announced by the National Federation of Health and Allied Workers (FENATRASAL) and the Classist Autonomous Trade Union Confederation (CASC), who support these employees and call on President Luis Abinader to compensate them.
The president of the CASC, Gabriel del Río Doñé, described the situation as overwhelming and desperate “that is why we are calling on the President of the Republic to listen to the Social Security workers.”
Likewise, it indicated that these collaborators were injured, since those who had been working for years and who were entitled to a pension, have not been granted it.
FENATRASAL and CASC requested that they be reinstated to their work or else that they be paid their employment benefits.
