Vasconcelos Library closes facilities until further notice
Vasconcelos Library closes facilities "until further notice". One of the largest cultural centers in Mexico has closed its doors to the public today. Although unprecedented, was coming to announce the nonconformity on the part of the workers of the library that has written on social networks "For reasons beyond our control, the Vasconcelos Library will remain closed, and therefore cultural activities will be canceled in its space, until further notice".
The Vasconcelos Library that opened from Monday to Sunday from 08:30 to 19:30 hours, located in the center of Mexico City closed its doors to the public, without providing further details. However, it was learned that in recent days the secretary of culture of Mexico was taken by the National Democratic Union of Workers of the Ministry of Culture (SNDTSC), who in the use of their labor powers, asked for a 3% salary increase and 1.8% in benefits to all its workers.
It is worth mentioning that the SNDTSC has a little more than 4 thousand workers and since Tuesday was in discontent over the working conditions and even, you can see in the social networks images of the requests made by the protesters asking for a change of manager.
Although at first they only blocked the entrances, the workers went to the office of the manager and the warehouses of the library to stop in their entirety the tasks that were carried out daily. Now, we have to wait for the meeting that Angeles Medina, representative of the SNDTSC union, has on Monday to establish the working conditions of the Vasconcelos Library. While this happens and they reach an agreement, the cultural establishment will remain closed.
Some sources say that the Vasconcelos Library it has an average number between 5 and 6 thousand daily visitors, and it also provides support to all schools in Mexico City.
While this is happening, the meeting of Mexican writers and the weekend courses will be suspended until further notice. Still not known what will happen with the cycle: shorts QUEER Mexico, celebrating the LGBTTTQ pride, which was held during these days.
