Garamendi advocates not losing purchasing power, but with solvent companies


The president of the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations (CEOE), Antonio Garamendi, has opted this Wednesday in Toledo for “being able to implement that we can all not lose purchasing power” and at the same time try “that companies do not close, are solvent and can continue working”.

Garamendi, who has participated in the delivery of the XIX Business Awards of the Confederation of Entrepreneurs of Castilla-La Mancha (Cecam), has claimed the role of collective bargaining, although it has warned that “it is not as easy as saying we are going to talk about wages homogeneously”, in relation to the unions’ demand for wage increases to mitigate the increase in the CPI .

According to the employer’s president, inflation is affecting everyone, “also businessmen”, since 98 percent of the companies have less than ten workers who are also suffering from the current situation, such as a bar or a business that is also affected by the energy crisis.

“In the end, what counts are the agreements”

However, he has indicated that “in the end what counts are the agreements” and, in this sense, he has assured that “they are signing”such as the one for construction that has been signed recently and that affects 1,400,000 workers, or the one for metal, signed this Tuesday in Barcelona as well as in Navarra and a few days ago that of Álava in this same sector.

In this regard, it has assessed: “We are making progress and what is important is that each sector and each company is advancing little by little”for which he has assured that the business organization will continue working on collective bargaining.

During his speech at the event, Garamendi defended that businessmen “are children of the Constitution, of democracy and of the transition and we are not, neither do we want to be nor will we be children of war”.

In this context, he lamented that “it seems that they want to divide and tense us” and even accusing with names and surnames, even in Parliament, the businessmen who “are helping them, creating jobs and working for our country”.

Likewise, he has claimed the “independence” of the businessmen, who have a “sense of state and institutional loyalty”, and has asserted that although “it seems that some have the intention of devaluing the institutions in some way”, the businessmen will be “always with an outstretched hand”.
