It is a company Atenas Logistics in Zona Franca | Authorities visited a company certified with the 40-hour Seal

Presidential delegate Daniel Quinteros stressed that in a period of 5 years “we will be able to live a reality that in other countries is already part of working conditions, thus improving the quality of life of workers in our country.”

A visit to the Atenas Logistics company, which has the 40-hour Seal certification, was made by the Tarapacá regional presidential delegate, Daniel Quinteros, in the company of the Labor Seremi, Ignacio Prieto and the Government Seremi(s), Cristian Jara.
In this company, located in the Free Zone, the workers have a 40-hour work week, anticipating the promulgation of the law, a fact highlighted by the authorities.
The implementation of this law, which in the region will benefit 102,000 workers, will be gradual. The reduction will be from 45 to 44 hours in the first year of the law, to 42 hours in the third year and 40 in the fifth year, and in no case should this mean a salary decrease. This period seeks to take care of employment and take care of the effort, in particular of small and medium-sized companies.
After talking with workers, the presidential delegate stated: “Today (Friday) President Gabriel Boric signed the decree that makes the 40 hours a reality in Chile. It is a longing for a long time. Many years have passed for today to be able to realize this dream that not only allows us to improve productivity in companies, not only improve work environments, but also take charge of the realities of care that we have in our country and promote co-responsibility among men and women”.
Along with this, Quinteros stressed that in a period of 5 years “we will be able to live in Chile a reality that in other countries is already part of the working conditions, thus improving the quality of life of workers in our country.”
For Ivette Salvo, CEO of Atenas Logistics, “improving the quality of life of the workers was the motivation for Atenas Logistics to join the 40 hours. With the pandemic, the company saw the need to reinvent itself, for which it applied many continuous improvement techniques, and what we did was prioritize the hours, we realized that we are very efficient when it comes to planning, which means that our work revolves around around the objectives and not the number of hours worked”.
Likewise, the Seremi of Labor and Social Welfare, Ignacio Prieto, expressed: “For our government, certified companies are an example and an incentive for many other companies to adopt this policy that shows that it is possible and desirable to make quality compatible of life, better labor relations, concrete action for decent work and the development of a good life”.
What does the 40 Hour Law establish?
Reduces the ordinary working day from 45 to 40 hours per week with the following gradualness: from 45 to 44 hours in the first year of publication of the law, to 42 hours in the third year, and to 40 in the fifth year. These are maximum deadlines, since any employer who wants to anticipate the reduction of the working day to 40 hours can do so without waiting for gradualness. In fact, the 40-Hour Stamp has been given to companies that have reduced the working day without having a law.
It also regulates special regimes. Although there are more categories, one of the most characteristic is that of private household workers. In the case of the doors outside: the reduction to 40 hours per week will operate according to the ordinary working day. In the case of indoors, the current system is maintained, with a minimum rest of 12 hours a day, but with compensation of two days additional monthly rest in order to materialize the reduction. These days may be accumulated by mutual agreement up to a period of three months, guaranteeing effective rest time.
Likewise, for exceptional days, which work with continuous processes, such as mining, it is allowed to compensate the excess of 40 hours with additional annual rest days.
It establishes co-responsibility mechanisms, such as time bands, which allow a differentiated entry and exit so that mothers, fathers and caregivers of children under 12 years of age can anticipate or delay the start and/or departure of work, which will allow a better reconciliation of the School schedules with working days. Another co-responsibility mechanism is the possibility of compensating overtime for up to five additional days of holidays.
The distribution of the ordinary day in 4 days of work for 3 days of rest, known as 4×3 is allowed. The companies that implement the 40 hours without waiting for gradualness may also apply the 4×3 shift in advance, in agreement with the workers.Taking into account the particularities of the world of work, the law contemplates specific support actions for the world of SMEs through two technical and decentralized services such as the National Training and Employment Service (Sence) and the Labor Directorate.
The exclusion of working hours from article 22, paragraph 2, of the Labor Code is restricted only to those who perform senior management tasks and to those who are not subject to superior supervision in accordance with the nature of their duties.
It also allows day averaging; that is to say, there will be the possibility of agreeing with the worker that the ordinary 40-hour day is fulfilled in an average of up to four weeks, with a maximum limit of 45 hours per week. 40 hours may not be exceeded for more than two weeks and, with this, the average of 40 hours per week will be respected. If the worker is unionized, prior agreement with the union will be required.

After a double femicide was recorded in Ramos Arizpe, the State Attorney General's Office (FGE) highlighted that most of the cases arise after the victims confront their aggressors and engage in discussions with these.

According to the Attorney General, Gerardo Márquez, the case is in the test data integration stage and the trial link hearing will be held today, Thursday, May 18.

Almost all the motives for feminicides have to do with couple and family arguments, so it is the main thing, so to speak, he said.

The owner of a store finds a graffiti in his premises and his revenge...

Juanfran Peñaranda, owner of a store, found graffiti on his banner and did not hesitate to take the law into his own hand. More and more people are dirtying the streets. Those who leave their cigarette butts on the beach, those with an empty potato bag on the ground, those with graffiti on the facade of a store, those who don't pick up the morning "gift" from the dog, and so on and on, in a country, Spain, in which each Spaniard generates almost 500 kilos of garbage per year. But we are going to stay with those of the graffiti and the “drawings”. Like those artists who smeared the blinds and the side walls of a little store in Chueca, in Madrid, to the despair and impotence of its owner. Well, the story that concerns us this morning is very similar, very similar, although the ending is quite different. This time, the artist has backfired. In 2006 nobody knew “Goatxa”. The name is invented and they say it means "The beautiful one". It is the name with which this store that printed clothes and other objects such as cups, caps, badges opened its doors... It is located in Juanfran Peñaranda, right in the historic center of the Valencian neighborhood of Benimaclet, and a few months ago in 'Herrera in COPE' they recovered this story. This is how Juanfran arouses interest in his store and his designs on the business website. It turns out that at the beginning of December of last year, it was Monday, when Juanfran went to open his store early in the morning, he found the signature of a graffiti artist on the banner of the store. He first got angry and thought "it's my turn to have the facade painted", but then he decided to turn the matter around. I have won 10,000 euros With them, Juanfran took a photo of the signature and went to the Registry of Patents and Trademarks to register that design. He later told the story on social media and announced that he was going to market his “new graffiti brand” on t-shirts. He thought that he would sell four or five, at most, but far from it, people began to ask him for t-shirts and in just four days he has sold more than 400 t-shirts with the text: “Brosa”. The success has been such that Juanfran is thinking of starting to stamp the signature on caps, key rings, sweatshirts, mugs and whatever it takes. If I have raised a joke and a thread, this cannot be closed. Imagine, a kid, because he is a safe kid, who has to come here with 1,000 euros to get his signature back. I found it very funny. For 1,000 euros I could even give it away, but because of the trolling, it seemed like a fantastic joke. First, that I clean my banderole, says Juanfran Peñaranda, taking all this with humor. The money goes to my father because the poor thing, he has been working all her life and he has non-contributory benefits. So, she was a little choked. This occurred to me, I already have my job and I earn my money. So what better Christmas present than you are already receiving. It has been very good for him, says the owner of the business, confessing in what he has invested the 10,000 euros that he has won as a result of the joke.
