Public sector deal confirmed as pharmacy workers also get pay rise


The public sector federations in the CCOO confederation and the FeSP-UGT federation have now formally signed the new three-year agreement covering five million public sector workers. The agreement will deliver increases of 3.5% in 2022, 2.5% in 2023 and 2.0% in 2024 but with the prospect of three extra increases of 0.5% depending on inflation and growth. If the conditions for the extra increases are met this would mean salaries rising by 9.8% by the end of 2024. The FeSP-UGT has also called for a government commitment that there will be no delay in ensuring workers in mutual societies, that play a key role in social security, will benefit from the increases. Meanwhile, the FeSP-UGT has also signed an agreement for the pharmacies sector that covers 60000 workers. It will provide pay increases totalling 11.5% over the three years 2022-24 with a 4% increase for 2022 backdated to 1 January and then increases of 4% in 2023 and 3.5% in 2024. The agreement was not signed by the CCOO-Sanidad federation because the FEFE employers’ organisation refused to negotiate on the issue of on-call time.
