The government says it will present 170 reforms to Brussels in exchange for the funds and the unions demand “prudence” of it.

The Government will present 170 reforms in 30 chapters to the European Union in exchange for European funds, according to the leaders of CCOO and UGT after a meeting with several ministers headed by the vice president Nadia Calvio. So much Unai Sordo, from CCOO, as Pepe Ã??lvarezThey have shown fear that the Executive will go too far in the pension and labor reforms to calm the European Commission and demand that the hands not be tied so much. “CCOO is not going to accompany any negotiation process that does not have margins. The commitments with the European Commission cannot be so exhaustive as to leave the social dialogue tables without oxygen. If there is no margin, they do not have us, “said Sordo.

Vice President Calvià ± o has subsequently stated that the European fund regulation establishes that “the recovery plans of the member states have to incorporate reforms and investments”But she has hinted that she would promote them anyway even if the EU did not ask for it, because she shares the diagnosis with Brussels about “problems carried over from the past and challenges for the future”.

For his part, the leader of UGT, Pepe Ãlvarez, has agreed with Sordo in demanding “prudence” from the Government in the commitments it assumes. Ãlvarez has criticized that the government has not provided them with the documents detailing the 170 reforms and has asked that they be delivered in writing. “We have to work on the basis of documents,” he stressed in response to Calvià ± o’s request that the unions make contributions. Both have understood Calvià ± o that of the 30 major reform chapters they have already sent 28 to Brussels for evaluation, but that it has not yet done so in the two most sensitive: the labor reform and the pension system. According to the unions, the ministers have not been explicit about both, but have assured that they do not see repealing the labor reform and avoiding cuts in pensions incompatible with the public Recommendations of the European Commission to Spain.

For his part, the president of Cepyme, Gerardo Cuerva, has thanked the Government for explaining the reforms and investments in which they are working. He has also asked for “prudence”, but in the sense that he forgets about dogmas and promotes the reforms that Spain needs “realistically” taking into account “the competitiveness of the Spanish economy” and “the delicate moment current”. While Sordo and Alvarez have insisted that it is necessary to “repeal the most damaging aspects of Rajoy’s labor reform, which are practically all of them”, the president of Cepyme, has been against introducing new rigidities in the market of employment.

Cuerva has stated that the Government has also asked them for “collaboration” and has defined the role of the employer as a “pactista”. But it has not committed itself to agreements in the reforms and not even in the ongoing negotiation to extend the ERTE until May 31. Calvià ± o has distanced itself from the position of CEOE and Cepyme in favor of companies being able to adjust their workforce despite having received aid in the ERTE, because “no one can imagine” that the taxpayer’s effort can serve “to tackle layoffs more s forward. ” Calvio is not different from the Minister of Labor, Yolanda DÃaz.
