Falcon legislature asks that workers be hired back

December 10, 2003

While accusations have flown back and forth between the Government and the opposition on pressures to sign or not to sign, the most relevant case to date was that of the Governor of Falcon state who kicked out sixty employees for signing against Hugo Chavez. This would not be news, except that the Legislative Assembly of that state voted unanimously today to censor the Governor and ask him to hire back the fired workers. Obviously, both pro and anti Chavez workers voted in favor of this resolution. Some interpret this as fairness, others simply say that some pro-Chavez politicians want to make sure they land on the correct side after the recall vote. (Note that there is a presidential decree in effect since June that prohibits firings, dumb decree, but who cares anyway)
