Proposal for 60 Town Hall staff to be moved to fixed term contracts

Estepona Town Hall is looking to put 60 of its staff on fixed term contracts and move them away from permanent employment contracts.

Recently, Councillor for personnel Cristina Rodríguez, said the number of civil servants in the Town Hall ‘is very low’ as they represent only 208 of the current 1,300 employees.

In Estepona, currently, there are 1,300 employees, of which 208 are town hall officers, 319 industrial and 800 workers in other council based companies. The town hall has serious problems in paying suppliers and meeting the payroll.
