Union calls for pay rise to be paid and other rights to be restored

Spain Spain

The public service federations within the CCOO confederation have called on the government to pay an additional increase of 0.25% for 2019 that would take the increase this year to 2.5% and ensure an increase in purchasing power for public sector workers. The 0.25% is part of an agreement where pay increases are linked to increases in economic output (GDP). The unions are concerned that the government has known since January that the payment would be due but has taken no action. The CCOO federations are also giving further impetus to their campaign to restore rights lost under austerity covering wages, jobs, the 35-hour week, medical leave, equality plans and partial retirement.
