Six regional governments have already decided to freeze their salaries, contrary to the rise of the central Executive

The autonomous governments of Andalusia, Aragón, the Balearic Islands, Cantabria, the Canary Islands and Madrid have already communicated that the salaries for 2021 of the senior positions of their Executives will not experience any change with respect to those of 2020, in contrast to the salary increase of 0 , 9% that the Government of Pedro Sánchez has applied in the General State Budgets (PGE).

This rise will also be applied by the Executive of Castilla-La Mancha, of the socialist Emiliano García-Page, who plans to increase his salary by 0.9% as established by state legislation for civil servant and labor personnel.

For its part, the first to make the decision to maintain the same salary was the Cantabrian Executive, whose president, Miguel Angel Revilla, and his directors will once again freeze their salaries, as they did last year .

Also in Andalusia, the senior officials of the Board, led by its president, Juanma Moreno, will charge the same amount as in 2020. The members of the autonomous Executive and members of its territorial structure renounce the 0.9 rise % that the Government has established in the PGE project, a salary increase that autonomous officials will enjoy.

In Madrid they have been frozen for 10 years

In Madrid, the Regional Minister of Finance, Javier Fernández-Lasquetty, he confirmed in an interview with OkDiary, that the salaries of the Governing Council will remain frozen. The salary of the top positions of the Madrid Executive have been frozen since 2010 at the level of 2007.

Likewise, the Executive of Francina Armengol, in the Balearic Islands, has decided to freeze the salaries of its advisers and senior officials, after this week they have presented the public accounts for 2021.

In the case of the Canary Islands, it is already stated in the public accounts project that the salary of senior officials will not have an increase compared to 2020. For its part, the Aragonese government has also confirmed to Europa Press that their salary for this year will be the same as the previous one. However, the public accounts of Aragon are in the preliminary draft phase, and so far only the spending ceiling has been approved.

At this time, a large part of the Autonomous Communities are in the middle of preparing their budgets, which makes it difficult to know if they will finally also apply the freezing of the remuneration of the high positions of their Government.

Catalonia applied an increase in May

Of course, in Catalonia during the month of May, the then president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, already decreed a 2% rise in the salaries of senior positions in the autonomous government, in addition to other salary increases.

In the middle of the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the Catalan Parliament endorsed the decree of the Generalitat which included that two percent increase for senior positions, as well as the 0.9% allowance for former directors and the updating of pensions for former presidents of the Generalitat.
