Naturgy has raised the trade unions for a temporary suspension of the obligation of work for about 300 employees of Nedgia, its distribution affiliate, until you know the final proposal of remuneration to the distribution networks of gas raised by the CNMC , the energy regulator.
trade union Sources have assured that this measure, which is not yet known how long it will be, implies that none of those affected will lose wage or Social Security contribution , and have clarified that Naturgy has not raised neither a STRONG nor a ERE in the company, something they have confirmed sources of Naturgy.
So, Naturgy choose of entry to avoid more drastic measures, waiting to see what impact this has on your business, the circular final of the CNMC.
And is that the CNMC has raised in its draft circular for the remuneration of the activities of distribution and transport of electricity and gas cuts that go half-from 7% to 21.8 %, in function of each activity, a measure that has been put on a war footing especially in the gas sector.
Sources of Naturgy have pointed out that is has opened a "table of negotiation" with the unions to negotiate the temporary suspension of the obligation to work, a measure which is attributed to the "uncertainty created by the regulatory agency" that would begin in October.
The measure affects about 300 people "exclusively" to Nedgia, the distribution affiliate of gas Naturgy, and good part of the affected staff are of the commercial area and to a lesser extent of units related to the activity of recruitment of new points of supply .
Sources of Naturgy have insisted that the company has been "committed to make this temporary measure," waiting to see what decisions are made once we know the final text of the CNMC.
In any case, Naturgy will continue to serve requests of clients and in compliance with the conditions marked, and there will be no changes in the relationship with customers, suppliers or management.
Also in July, Naturgy made it clear that the cessation of investment in new networks does not affect the investments in the maintenance and security of the current.
on the other hand, the trade union sources consulted ensures that at the negotiating table we will take an review of goals of the last quarter in Nedgia and an agreement for that period, less harmful to the employees, a portion of whose salary is variable.Updated Date: 15 September 2019, 03:00
