“El periódico ha de estar siempre como los correos antiguos, con el caballo enjaezado, la fusta en la mano y la espuela en el tacón.  Debe desobedecer los apetitos del bien personal y atender imparcialmente al bien público”.

Cuba Imposes New Restrictions on Cooperatives

cooperativas-cua

The Ministry of Construction has issued an order prohibiting cooperatives in its field from carrying out work outside the province in which they were established. Works that are underway in other provinces must now conclude within a period of no more than three months.

In addition, they are forbidden in the future to hire labor, self-employed workers, and only members of the cooperatives can work on projects. However at the same time they are prevented from increasing the number of members they currently have.

A board member of one of these cooperatives, confirmed the veracity of Ministerial Resolution OM-3890-17, issued on August 14, and said that their co-op’s permit was not renewed. Thus, although they are still allowed to continue exercising with the expired license, they could lose their legal status.
