Government and social agents resume the pending negotiation of pensions


The Government resumes this afternoon the negotiation with the social agents for the last phase of the pension reform that will include the gradual increase in the maximum Social Security contributions over the next three decades. The Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations has summoned the UGT and CCOO unions, and the CEOE and Cepyme employers, to the social dialogue table at 6:30 p.m., after the last formal meeting on September 12.

In recent weeks, the social agents have complained about the lack of negotiation regarding the aspects that remain pending to complete the pension reform that the Government has committed to Brussels for this year. Among the pending issues is the adequacy of the computation period to cover contribution gaps and the increase in the bases and maximum pensions.

The talks will take place a few hours before the National Institute of Statistics publishes the advanced inflation data for November on Tuesday. The first part of the pension reform, approved at the end of last year, once again linked its revaluation to the CPI (at the average rate registered between December 2021 and November 2022).

Minister Escrivá recently announced that the second leg of the pension reform will be processed by fast track, as a Royal Decree-law, so that it can enter into force on January 1, on the date on which the Executive guaranteed Brussels that would be ready within the framework of its Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.

It will include the modification of the calculation period (to adapt it to new careers and also take contribution gaps into account) or the increase in the maximum contribution bases, so that higher salaries contribute more to the System. This rise would be followed in the coming decades by that of the maximum pension. Minister José Luis Escrivá is confident that he will be able to close these issues before the end of the year, to which he adds the revision of the modalities of partial and active retirement.
