"The greatest offer of public employment». It is an announcement that the Government of Pedro Sánchez has carried out almost every year since the motion of censorship against Mariano Rajoy prosperted. In fact, one of the first things he did was precisely that: Announce the 2018 job offer, endowed with 23,062 posts and, in fact, had been negotiated by the previous executive. But the Socialist Government did not doubt to appropriate the measure.
And since then, in all the exercises, except 2020, the data has been growing. More than 28,000 in 2019; The following year there was that light fall although it was maintained above those same 28,000 posts; And in 2021, the data was growing again hard until they hit the 30,5000 seats by adding those destined to the General State Administration (AGE) and those of the State Forces and Bodies of the State and Armed Forces. Again, "the greatest offer of public employment" and, in total, and more than 100,000 places of officials offered by the Government of Pedro Sánchez.
This important pace of public procurement is very celebrated by the Executive, and a good example of this is that the Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, stopped at that point during the presentation of the General Budgets of the State (PGE) of 2022. " In three years of Government of Pedro Sánchez, the offer of public employment has been 73% higher than that of the six years of Mariano Rajoy, this is a government that is committed to quality public services, the welfare state, employment And people, "he said with satisfaction in the presentation that took place last Thursday.
To these notable figures, in addition, the important hiring are added that in recent months have carried out communities as a direct consequence of the pandemic. So much so that functions and CEOE have certified in recent weeks that, effectively, employment has recovered the levels prior to the pandemic. But that recovery, add, has been possible thanks to the public sector thrust because if only the data of the private scope is taken what is observed is that it is still far from the pre-covid figures.
In what has not shone the Government of Pedro Sánchez is in its ability to negotiate with unions, especially as long as salary increases. In 2021 he imposed an increase of 0.9% and for 2022, and again unilaterally, he communicated the unions that the improvement will be 2%. CSIF and UGT clearly showed their discontent, and CCOO, in an unprecedented decision, did not even attend the meeting that called public function to transmit its proposal-imposition. Therefore, the representatives of the officials have stopped giving them to press the parliamentary groups during the processing of the budgets to try to achieve some type of additional improvement.
But Montero made it clear that there is no chance that the increase goes beyond that 2%. The world has already published that, at the meeting with the unions, public function transmitted to the unions that this increase was more than enough and that officials will not lose purchasing power. "We trust that inflation is moderated in the last months of the year and there is no loss of power," they explained from the ministry. And the same thing is that Montero pointed him, as he sketched a small smile at the possibility that the unions were trying to boycott, or at least hinder, the approval of the budgets.Updated Date: 09 October 2021, 13:12
