Venezuela’s new Organic Labor Law, which is expected to be passed before May 1, 2012, will pave the way for new changes in the means of production so that labor stop being merchandise and become the main source of development in the country, said the President of the National Assembly’s Commission of Integral Social Development, Congressman Oswaldo Vera, on Tuesday.
During a televised interview, Vera said the law will address two main issues: the role of workers in building a new society and the historical confrontation of labor and capital.
“We’ve been creating a work plan for a massive consultation in which all workers will be the main characters. There’s work already developed on this matter by the commission and several proposals,” he said.
The Venezuelan deputy insisted that the new law must be drafted by the workers themselves, who will debate within their labor organizations the considerations that may be included.
