Public Health, Unions in the Spotlight: The Week in Talent

By Antonio Gozain | Fri, 05/13/2022 - 13:03

After several hurdles, the Independent Syndicate of National Workers (SINTTIA) signed the first collective labor agreement with General Motors in the Silao, Guanajuato, plant. The Mexican Worker Confederation (CTM) held the contract since the opening of the plant in 1995. Meanwhile, INSABI issued job postings for several medical and nursing staff.

 

This is the Week in Talent!

 

Effective Leadership in the Digital Age

The migration towards hybrid and remote work demanded the development of a new leadership model that considered communication difficulties and the loss of social capital. This prompted a widespread introspection of what this role should look like in the digital age and the added value it creates for companies.

Digital leadership among other critical talent topics will be discussed at Mexico Talent Forum, held on May 18-20. Get your tickets here and join the future of B2B conferences!

ELSSA Attracts 165 Companies After Launch

The incentives offered by the newly formed Safe and Healthy Work Environments (ELSSA) agency, created to advance and preserve the health of employees, have attracted the voluntary conscription of 165 companies since its launch a week ago. Fostering a preventive health workplace culture stands to add at least three points to the national GDP, says Zoé Robledo, General Director, Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS).

INSABI Begins Recruiting Medical Professionals

INSABI just issued job postings for several medical and nursing staff. The highest payment for some of the positions is about MX$49,000 (US$2,432.67), which is significantly higher than the average wage for these professionals in Mexico.

INSABI’s recruiting process is taking place in the municipalities of Chiapas, Colima, Oaxaca and Yucatan. In Chiapas and Yucatan, the institute is looking for management staff for hospitals, with an offered monthly salary of MX$49,000 (US$2,432.67) in both states. Postings for medical staff in Colima and Oaxaca indicate a monthly salary ranging from MX$35,000 (US$1,737.62) to MX$41,000 (US$2,035.50).

General Motors, SINTTIA Reach Deal After Salary Agreement

The Independent Syndicate of National Workers (SINTTIA) signed the first collective labor agreement with General Motors in the Silao plant, following two elections to legitimize the collective bargaining agreement, a complaint from the US government to Mexico and an additional vote to represent the workers.

Corporate Governance as an Investment

Companies need guidance to avoid getting in trouble with the new labor standards, says Tergum’s Gamaliel Santiago.

“Adapting to the Labor Reform was not easy for companies. Tergum has helped many companies through the process, which did not only require them to rehire workers under the new scheme; they also had to complete an employer substitution as the reform demands.”
