Unions push for action on agreements in local government

Spain

The FSC-CCOO and FSP-UGT trade union federations met with the FEMP local government employers on 26 June to discuss what action can be taken to protect collective agreements in the sector. The unions are concerned about implementation of law 3/2012 which will have the effect that any collective agreement that is not renewed by 7 July will be considered as no longer applicable. The unions put forwards four action points calling for the intensification of current negotiations, for use of dispute resolution where negotiations are blocked and for the inclusion of clauses stating that current agreements apply until they are renewed. FEMP said it would raise union concerns with the Civil Service Commission. Unions are optimistic that FEMP will support them in defending collective agreements in the sector and working towards a repeal of the legislation.
