Public service federations call for pay negotiations


The public service federations within the CCOO confederation have denounced the lack of negotiation of the general state budgets for 2022. They have also criticised the 2% increase imposed on public service workers for 2022 as completely insufficient. The federations have called for negotiations to start on a new multi-year salary agreement that guarantees the maintenance of purchasing power. The last three-year agreement (2018-2020) led to some progress towards restoring pay after the cuts and freezes of the austerity years.  Along with pay the unions want to see other urgent measures addressed such as employment and the need to address the ageing workforce, improvements to careers and training, action on equality, establishing a 35-hour week and other measures relating to telework and pensions.
