Final pressure of the Government on the President of CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, to accept the Agreement for Labor Reform Next week.
The Government's representatives at the Social Dialogue Bureau indicated by unions and entrepreneurs that an agreement must be reached in the coming days with the aim of having it published in the Official State Bulletin (BOE) before the end of the year, according to They affirm this diary in sources of negotiation. For this reason, they imposed a new rhythm of "daily meeting" from now on, which has no precedents and sounds on Ultimatum of the Second Vice President, Yolanda Díaz, who maintains leadership in the negotiation.
Thus, a delicate moment is approaching for Garamendi and its Executive Committee, because government messages are at stake 12,000 million from the next section of European funds that are conditioned to a labor reform that Brussels desires agreed by all social agents. The President of CEOE has rejected so far that it is responsible for the employer of a possible loss of European funds. "We prefer that the European money does not come and there are better rules," he came to declare on November 9.
Since then he has avoided strident statements and let the negotiation be passed, but the government already shows impatience.
Sources of the employer insist that it is "very difficult" the agreement, but they are kept in negotiation. In CEOE, a division is also opening between those who show more willingness to agree on a minimum agreement that saves the highest possible furniture of the 2012 labor reform and those who consider that for that result it is better not to be an accomplice and reject. "This is not a matter of minor evil, but that the reform does not involve an involution on what has worked on the labor market with the 2012 reform," they point out in CEOE.
Both the first vice president, Nadia Calviño, and the second, Yolanda Díaz, coincide on this occasion when the calendar must be accelerated and therefore discarded extensions, despite the fact that sources of the European Commission do not discard them, as long as the result is ambitious and effective.
At the moment, the only one clear is the decision to intensify the aforementioned rhythm of negotiation. The Ministry of Labor has forced social agents to hold meetings even daily after failing their last attempt agreed this Friday. Sources of negotiation ensure that the Government presented this Friday a new document to try to close one of the most delicate aspects of reform, temporality, but has not been accepted by the parties.
Sources of employers and unions agree that in four new hours of meeting of the Social Dialogue Bureau for the Reformation, "there has been no significant progress."
The representatives of the Government have indicated that the current rhythm, of three weekly meetings, has been short and that it is already precise already a meeting a day to try to fulfill the commitment to Brussels to have the decree with the new reform published in the BOE before end of the year.
This is the calendar that for now the Second Vice President of the Government that keeps his political agenda time and will be received this Saturday by Pope Francis.Date Of Update: 10 December 2021, 21:14
