The representatives of the Government are left out of the signing of the V Agreement for Employment and Collective Bargaining (AENC), as had been advanced by the different social agents and confirmed this morning by the president of the CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, after his executive and that of UGT will support the text. the pre-agreement covers the period 2023-2025 It will foreseeably be signed tomorrow, because the CCOO will ratify it throughout this Tuesday.
The leader of the employers’ association, in statements to RNE collected by Europa Press, has confirmed that neither the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, nor the Second Vice President and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, will be invited to the signing ceremony. The explanation, he has said, is that it is a bipartite agreementin which the Government does not participate because collective bargaining is a matter that is the exclusive responsibility of unions and employers.
“Nobody has been vetoed here, nor is anyone vetoed, but, and I think that and the unions are also clear about it, this is a bipartite agreement,” Garamendi stated. The CEO of the CEO has described the agreement of agreements reached with the CCOO and UGT as “very important”because it generates social peace, which is “the greatest infrastructure that a country can have”.
“From positions on the part, we are capable of seeking common goals, each giving up the part that touches us, and I believe that society is recognizing it as a very positive aspect“, the business leader pointed out. Garamendi “misses” that the agreements take place “in absolutely all areas of life” and, he pointed out, that “in a country where economic policy is also part of the electoral battle, it cannot be otherwise”.
