When Bigastro closed the emergency night service at the Health Centre, they fired the concierge to save money. At first Antonio Giménez was offered no compensation, then he was offered a post at the eco-park. When the emergency service was reinstated, he was given his post back but on a lower grade with less pay. Giménez took the matter to court where is was decided that he had been unfairly dismissed. However he does not know how much compensation he will be given nor when.
Giménez is aware that there were a number of people who were fired two years ago but have not, as yet, received a cent. As the saying goes, “you cannot get blood out of a stone” and as we all know Bigastro is broke.
