The CEOE adds to the ECB and the Bank of Spain in the request of moderate salaries despite inflation

The Patronal CEOE, represented by its vice president, Íñigo Fernández de Mesa, has joined the request for moderation of salaries expressed one day before by the Vice President of the European Central Bank, Luis de Guindos, and by the Governor of the Bank of Spain, Paul Hernández de Cos.

Fernández de Mesa has participated this Saturday at the days of Economics of S'Agaró (Girona), after that of Cos and Hernández de cos did it on Friday, and has coincided with them in which the level of inflation is transient and in the Learning that would lead a salary review upward.

His initial vision is that "companies, as a result of this crisis, have seen their margins decreased almost 10%" having linked to that section increase in cost of raw materials, industrial prices or energy.

However, this increase is going to be "temporary" according to the Vice President of the CEOE, who has urged to be "prudent" so that there is no second round effects that generate an increase in inflation. "

The justification has also been that each European country experiences "different inflations", but with the same currency and that a divergence in that section "from Spain with respect to Germany" would make it lose "a lot of competitiveness", with an impact on employment .

Íñigo Fernández de Mesa appeals to the opinion of the central banks to endorse his consideration of transitory increase in inflation and has insisted on that commitment to "be prudent".

Regarding the new variant of the COVID, it has been limited to ensuring that, in Europe, go to the "quite quiet" countries, since very hard confines are not expected "and the economy is recovering quite strength."

UGT Secretary General in Catalonia, Camil Ros, has also participated in the sessions of S'Agaró and, on the salary review, has attorney to reach "mid-term and long-term" agreements to adapt salaries "to reality" .

"We need to grow wages to reach the end of the month," said Ros, who has remembered that the workers have been folded in many cases the electric bill and that "prices have not risen only for companies".

Consequently, it criticizes that employees are those who assume the increase in costs by not applying the review clauses and reminded companies that have problems that have "discolving clauses".

CCOO spokesman in Catalonia, Cristina Torres, has also offered her point of view in S'Agaró, which goes by "renewing the employment agreement and state collective bargaining, where references are given for salary increases in collective agreements."

Torres interprets that the current price rise is "conjunctural" and, therefore, has positioned itself against the moderation of salaries.

Even, it has come to warn from the danger of social conflict derived from that "workers do not want to lose their working conditions" and want to have their negotiated agreements, although it has pointed out that it is not "a threat", but "it is being seen" " . As Camil Ros, Cristina Torres has considered that the price rise "affects the whole world" and, especially, to the "lower income", which derives in those conflicts.
