Pay offer rejected


The CC.OO union federation has refused to endorse the agreement for the 2006 pay increase in the public sector. The basic increase for the public sector for 2006 negotiated in the summer was for 3.1%. Since then unions have negotiated an extra 0.3% for central government and 0.5% for local government. The CC.OO points out that in 2005 public sector workers lost out with a 3.0% pay increase while inflation rose to 3.5% by October 2005. The union also says the government has tried to confuse the negotiations over pay by mixing them up with discussions over other issues such as work-life balance.
