Pay deals for overseas and veterinary staff


The FSC-CCOO and UGT-SP federations have confirmed that workers in embassies and other overseas missions will get a 2.5% pay increase backdated to 1 January 2023, in line with the main framework agreement covering public administration. They have also secured a guarantee to negotiate a new salary revision later in the year, in the event of an increase for other public administration staff. The two unions have reaffirmed the validity of the 1990 Agreement and the demand to ensure an annual salary review that that obliges the administration to negotiate a periodic increase in pay taking into account the fluctuations of the exchange rate of currencies and local inflation. The UGT-SP, along with FSS-CCOO, has also negotiated a new three-year agreement covering around 35000 veterinary staff, running from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2025. Wages will rise by 4.5%, 3.5% and 3% for the years 2023, 2024 and 2025, with a review clause if inflation over the three years is more than 11%. The agreement also includes improvements to night bonuses, holiday pay, mileage payments, annual and special leave and career progression.
