Federation mobilises over pay and state sector agreement


The collective agreement covering the state sector has been extended for a year but the public service federation FSC-CCOO is calling for negotiations on pay and for the government to ensure it complies fully with the existing agreement. The salary increase for 2022 has been imposed by the government and set at 2%. FSC-CCOO says this is inadequate and is demanding a salary review clause linked to inflation. The federation is also calling for a number of elements of the agreement to be properly and fully implemented including provisions covering partial retirement, complementary pay (€5.6 million agreed for 2018-2020 have not been allocated) and other measures relating to career development, mobility and promotion. FSC-CCOO has called a demonstration on 27 January to highlights its demands for wage improvements, more quality public employment, real collective bargaining and immediate compliance with the collective agreement.
