Colombia’s Government has filed a bill proposing a labor reform that aims to guarantee and improve the rights of the country’s workers. The reform was announced at a symbolic event in the Plaza de Armas, with the presence of President Gustavo Petro. The bill, called ‘Work for Change’, was constructed over six months in tripartite tables with the participation of trade unions, production unions, and the government, with the support of the International Labor Organization, the World Bank, the UN, and the Ibero-American Social Security Organization. The reform aims to prioritize permanent contracts, reduce labor outsourcing, and formalize work on digital platforms. It also hopes to increase paternity leave to 12 weeks and ensure equal pay between men and women. Additional provisions include paying workers 100% extra for work on Sundays and holidays, and requiring affiliated social security for self-employed workers on digital platforms. The bill will be presented for congressional approval.
