The Government paralyzes the dismissal stop despite the Díaz crusade
The General Union of Workers (UGT) has made public this Friday the allegations presented by the Government and the employers -national and European- to the claim presented by the union before the European Committee of Social Rights, in which they denounced that the Spanish legislation does not comply with the provisions of the European Social Charter. The general secretary of the UGT, Pepe Álvarez, and the vice-secretary for union policy, Fernando Luján, have affirmed that they were surprised to have found points of agreement in the positions expressed by the Executive and the employers.
Faced with the statements that the Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, has been making in recent weeks, the allegation presented by the coalition government before the Council is in accordance with the regulations on unfair dismissal. The Government, according to the union’s complaint, defends in the letter that the 33-day compensation included in the 2012 labor reform promoted by the Government of Mariano Rajoy is sufficient to be a deterrent. Although the text consulted by La Información does not pronounce these words, in the final conclusions it reflects that “in the opinion of the Government of Spain, the Spanish system, as opposed to what was sustained by the claimant entity (UGT) is compatible with article 24 of the European Social Charter”, after summarizing the benefits of having a fixed compensation.
