“The challenges posed by the artificial intelligence for the world of work must be addressed in an articulated manner with public policies”, said the Secretary of Strategic Affairs, Mercedes Marco del Pontduring a meeting with general secretaries of seven unions to discuss the challenges that AI presents to the world of work.
The general secretaries of the Banking Association, FOETRA, SMATA, UPCN, SATSAID, CTERA and the Insurance Union attended. It also had the participation of the Minister of Labor and Employment, Kelly Olmos, who affirmed the need to “work together to design and implement tools so that artificial intelligence is a development opportunity.” The authorities of the Sadosky Foundation made a presentation that allowed the dimensioning of the challenges for the world of work associated with the incorporation of new technologies in the field of artificial intelligence in production processes.
“We must raise a articulated agenda between the State and the worker sector to intervene on this new scenario to guarantee that the incorporation of artificial intelligence is done in such a way that labor rights are guaranteed”, considered Marcó del Pont when referring to the potential impact of the use of new technologies in the world of work. “We have to think of a framework where regulation, union organization and training allow these technologies to promote the objectives of inclusive development with decent employment,” said the head of Strategic Affairs.
During the meeting, the representatives of the different unions presented the approaches and practices implemented in the respective activities based on the incorporation of artificial intelligence, highlighted the challenges they face and emphasized the relevance of articulating with the national government to, as happens in different countries, advance in the design of public policies.
