Rivas clean points workers ask for more security against "continuous robberies"
Carmen, who works at the Clean Point on Fundition Street, tells Diario de Rivas that she is "low and in treatment for anxiety and stress".«All related to the situation we live at work.I cannot work in conditions in which I only cry for the fear that I have to these people, ”says the worker.
According to the testimony of this municipal employee, not only often occur robberies, but the young band of young people has attacked "up to twice" within the clean point of the man who steals alone."They have burned a leg with a lighter and again broke his nose," he says.
In addition, she explains that herself have been stolen on occasion personal.."Before an automatic door was installed in the office, my bag were stole.And also denounces "threats and insults" to workers by the drug dependent.
The accumulation of similar events led Carmen to a state of anxiety "incompatible with the performance of their functions".He asked for the volunteer at four months, but ensures that he could only work for a month before having to stop again."I could not.I am scared with the beep of a car, ”says Carmen.
Carmen acknowledges that the municipal company has tried to respond to the demand for municipal workers to improve security at the clean point of Fundition Street, “where everything happens.Severo Ochoa's is calmer;At least they enter to steal when we are not working, ”he says.
One of these measures has been to put a security person in the last three hours of opening of the recycling center, where a person works in turn.However, for Carmen it is not the solution because "they come to steal at any time"."I have found one of the people who often steal sleeping inside the clean point," he says.
Every time she or some of her companions detect one of these people inside the clean point of Fundition Street, they call the Local Police, who goes to talk to them and expel them from the premises."They tell us that they can't do much more.People who walked through the clean point already know that this is so and how do nothing happen, they return, ”he adds.
