The Palau de la Música cancels the absorption of the municipal band’s staff

VALENCIA. Finally, the absorption of the Municipal Band staff by the Palau de la Música announced months ago is canceled. It was last June when the alarms went off among the professionals before the City Council’s intention that the music center take over the staff, a decision that, they explained at the time, would entail a “substantial improvement with respect to better management, with greater taking advantage of personal means and promoting them. ”The decision fell like a jug of cold water on the band and the protests did not take long to arrive, because, according to its members, going to the Palau would mean the”gradual amortization of the official positions of the band, creating a duality between civil servants and workers, which will make the coexistence of the personnel very difficult, as is happening where these circumstances occur ”, as they explained to this newspaper.

Although the president of the Palau, Gloria Tello, wielded then that the criticism responded to the “lack of technical and legal knowledge of the band”, finally it has been decided that the temporary staff of the Valencia Municipal Symphonic Band continue to be employed by the Council of Personnel of the consistory, “until that the aforementioned council take out the necessary consolidation processes for you “. This has been explained by Tello herself and the mayor, Joan Ribó, in a message sent this Friday to the members of the band, which he has been able to access Cultureplaza.

“Despite being aware that you were not in any occupational danger due to the transfer of interns from the Valencia Municipal Symphonic Band to the Palau de la Música, we understand that you are afraid of this issue and as what we would never want is that nobody has a bad time unnecessarily, the mayor of Valencia and the councilor have made this decision, “reads the text. The rest of the staff will be integrated into the Palau de la Música as quickly as the appropriate procedures are completed, they point in a message in which, they insist, they want to convey “tranquility” to the band.
