Unions welcome new national agreement

Spain Spain
The two main public service federations – FSC-CCOO and FSP-UGT – have signed the third agreement covering workers in the general state administration. The agreement covers around 60,000 workers across Spain and was also signed by the CSI-CSIF, CIG and ELA trade unions. The unions are positive about the agreement and its improvements to pay particularly bearing in mind the current economic climate. The agreement runs until 31 December 2009 and confirms a range of increases including the 1% increase in the wages bill established by the 2009 Budget, 0.37% in additional fund from 2007-2009, 2% in productivity payments and an overall sum of €90,000 arising from the extension of the 2004 agreement. Unions are especially happy about an overall increase in funding of €1,200,000 that had not been in the government’s original offer.
