Unions plan protests and strike over collective agreement


On 22 March trade unions, including FSS-CCOO and FeSP-UGT, will begin a joint campaign of mobilization of staff at the Labour and Social Security Inspectorate. It aims to put pressure on the government to abide by a collective agreement that was signed last year. The unions want action to address staff and material shortages that are having a major impact on service delivery. It argues that that the government needs to recognise the efforts made by staff in recent years to maintain the service and the fact that many workers are facing burnout. Demonstrations are planned across the country on 22 March and a first 24-hour strike on 30 March. The unions highlight the fact that the Ministry of Labour is failing to implement a collective agreement that it has signed and which includes measures that address the problems facing the Inspectorate.
