New mobilizations and labor strike in Bilbao

In the heart of Bilbao, the situation seems to repeat itself like an echo of the past. La Ertzainas platform in Struggle, together with the Euspel union, has raised its voice again, and they begin a strike, marking a before and after in their history of demands. After a year of talks that seemed to fall on deaf ears, these law enforcement advocates have decided enough is enough. Their message is clear, they seek fair working conditions, treatment that reflects their daily dedication and effort. But what has changed for these voices to suddenly rise louder than ever?

Negotiations stalled: a year without changes

Imagine waiting for response after response, and your voice is lost in the void. That is precisely what has happened with Ertzainas in Lucha and Euspel. They sat at the negotiating table with renewed hope, especially after a recent meeting with the new deputy councilor, where for the first time they felt heard. However, the reality is harsh, like a direct blow to the heart, the situation has not changed. They're stuck, and the clock keeps ticking, reminding them that another year could pass without progress.

A pressure strategy: the jealousy strike

Given the lack of progress, they have no choice but to up the ante. The “zeal strike” is not a decision taken lightly; It is a desperate cry for attention, an attempt to be heard. Over the next month, Bilbao will witness how these professionals adhere to the rules to the letter, a peaceful but powerful strategy. This is not a whim, but a measure designed to highlight the importance of their work and the need to be valued.

The response of the Basque Government: a mystery

However, silence can be deafening, and in this case, it is full of tension. Deputy Minister Ricardo Ituarte is in a delicate position. The ball is in their court, and expectations are high. The community of Bilbao and the entire province of Bizkaia are watching carefully, waiting for an outcome that could set a precedent. Will the Basque Government be able to offer a fair solution that recognizes the value of these public servants? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain, the patience of the Ertzainas and Euspel has a limit.

A call to the community: the role of the citizens of Bilbao

In this tangle of voices and claims, we cannot forget the crucial role played by the citizens of Bilbao and Bizkaia. This is not just a matter of labor negotiations; It is an issue that affects the safety and well-being of the community. Therefore, it is essential that the population informs itself, gets involved and, above all, understands the importance of the work of these professionals.

Without a doubt, we are facing a crucial moment of strike for the Ertzainas and Euspel. This is a call for reflection, not only for the Basque Government but for the entire society of Bilbao and Bizkaia. Safety, respect and workplace justice are not just words; They are fundamental pillars of our community. It is time to listen, to act and, above all, to value those who protect us every day.
