With more than 350,000 members, the workers of the Corporate Social Work (Osdepym) warn that it can make a possible cut of the services of Health. The reason why they warn that this cut could be generated is due to alleged irregularities in the management of the entity. This was denounced by members of the self-styled Normalizing Commission that denounces the diversion of funds for political purposes.
Osdepym is an independent social work that does not belong to any union organization. In 2018, it was intervened by the Government of Mauricio Macri, and with the beginning of Alberto Fernández’s administration, a new controller was appointed.
“We are talking about an important social work. I was director at the time of Mauricio Macri’s intervention, they began with a process of emptying. Hope came with the new government but it was the opposite“, said former director Mauro González in radio statements.

According to a statement sent by the commission, until the time of the intervention, the social work had a surplus, and it warns that “there have been hiring direct, that do not respond to the object of the social work, of companies of doubtful existence for proven values of, at least, $108 million”.
“This is reflected in the shortfall in benefits payments exceed 160 days. The government has to take care of it urgently,” González continued.
And he adds: “The service is very bad, they give 90-day shifts and there are permanent claims to social work. It is a social work going bankrupt. We ask that the issue be resolved now. Properties have been sold to pay off debts.”

“The service is very bad, they give 90-day shifts and there are permanent claims to social work,” says González
“The losses have consumed the strategic reserves and, to pay providers in 30 or 45 days, today they are paying 150 days. This leads to service cuts and termination of providers,” they warn in the statement sent by the commission.
They also warn that “administrative expenses have increased by 50 percent and spending on benefits is out of control.”
“The diversion of funds for political and personal purposes is proven,” they say. And they add that “it is essential to change the controller now, put a neutral official and normalize Osdepym, since the health service of 100,000 families is at stake.”
