Unions call on government to honour agreements

The FeSP-UGT and FSC-CCOO public service federations continue to push the government to honour key agreements and commitments some of which date back to 2016. Above all the unions want to see the main agreement (IV) covering state administration workers fully implemented, including a new pay structure. The delay since March 2019 means that workers are already owed anything from €670 to over €2100, depending on their grade. The unions are concerned about the government stalling on this and also saying that any pay increase this year is dependent on the budget for 2021. There are other outstanding issues including the drafting and implementing of equality plans and action on recruitment and promotion. The FSC-CCOO has been organising social media campaigns and protests with a demonstration outside the public service ministry set for 30 July.
