Public service unions want urgent action on temporary work


The FeSP-UGT and unions in the CCOO confederation have called on the government to urgently address the continuing problem of temporary work in the public services. The unions say that the government needs to set out the criteria that should apply in transferring temporary staff to permanent status. Broadly speaking the unions want to ensure that all those who have been temporarily employed for at least three years have the opportunity to move to a permanent contract and that the process of doing so is clear, certain and equitable. They also want the public service ministry to clarify how the issue was addressed before the legislation was adopted in 2021. The unions will also be pressing for negotiations on other key issues including pay, working hours, retirement, mobility and promotion.
