(Bogotá).- Coljuegos is the State Industrial and Commercial Company for the administration of the Monopoly of Games of Chance and Fortune, created by Decree 4142 of 3 November 2011, amended by Decree 1451 of 2015, as a decentralised company of the national order, linked to the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit.

Coljuegos works for health resources for the Colombians

The main purpose of the entity is the exploitation, administration, operation and issuance of regulations of the games that are part of the monopoly on games of chance and chance that are not attributed to another entity by law. Coljuegos administers through third parties the modalities of localised games (casinos, bingos, sports betting and virtual races); novelty games (Baloto- Revancha and SuperAstro), novelty games by internet (sports betting, live casino, virtual betting), raffles and promotional games of national character.

In order to develop its purpose, in accordance with Decree 1452 of 2015, the Entity has a staff of 194 official workers, whose relationship, as explained by the President of Coljuegos, Dr Marco Emilio Hincapié, "is carried out through fixed-term contracts, which means that it is an agreement between the employee and the employer for a term of six months, with obligations for each of the parties and with a defined purpose since the creation of the entity, on 3 November 2011".

It is important to indicate that during the period 2018 to 2023, there were resignations and terminations of contracts with workers in the following magnitudes: 42 in 2018, 49 in 2019, 28 in 2020 (a low figure due to the fact that we were in the middle of the pandemic), 72 in 2021, 42 in 2022 and so far this year 16 people. This last figure is distributed among four presidents that the entity had in 2023.

The Company is respectful of the constitutional right of association, however, it also honours the employment contracts entered into and the specific clauses to which the parties committed themselves; therefore it is not correct to state that the rights or prerogatives of the people who work in Coljuegos are being disregarded or violated.

In addition to indicating the regime of the contracts with the workers, the President of Coljuegos indicates that the main purpose of his management in the Government "Colombia, world power of life", as head of the regulatory body of games of chance in Colombia consists of: "to comply with an action plan to achieve the change with which we are clearly identified, the peace of our country. We will achieve this to the extent that we work for legality in our sector, which will allow us to increase the resources for the health of Colombians".
