Modification to the basic course regulations relating to security in port jobs.

In the Official Gazette N° 40,765 of 24 January, 2014 it was published the Supreme Decree N° 4 from the Ministry of Labour and Social Security that approves a modification to the basic course regulations relating to security in port jobs. This basic course is established in Article 133 of the Labour Code. The modification establishes that in those cases in which the population supply or the country economy is seriously affected or in which the national security becomes endangered, circumstances that will be determined by resolution based on the Ministry of Labour and Social Security in collaboration with the Ministry of Economy and National Defence, the actualization of the mentioned course will be authorized in order to be carried out with the aim that either Chilean or foreign workers that have a medium/higher technical degree or a professional degree given by a recognized higher education institution may performance port jobs. In same way, workers with a driving licence A or with at least two-year experience driving licence class B or D will be able to take the same course.

Despite that the said modification establishes more details, which we do not include; this modification has its origin in the continuous port strikes that have been taken place in the country.
