The Government opens the door to technical solutions for its partners to ratify the labor reform – CVBJ

the government will dive in the coming days in the heated negotiations of the labor reform, with determination save text that he has come to an agreement with unions and employers but also aware that he must make concessions obtain the affirmative vote of ERC, PNV and EH Bildu. the Ministry of Labor, who’s who lead conversations, initiated contacts with Investment partners. In these first bars, the requests of each group are collected. The citizens have not yet been called, despite the fact that this party was willing to consider their support.
The executive has a mandate of up to February 7 to validate Royal Decree-Law 32/2021, of December 28, on urgent measures for labor reform and, despite the rejection displayed by many formations that make up the majority of the investiture, he is able to do so. There is only one impassable line, according to informed sources: the reopening of the impeachment debate. Currently set at 20 days per year worked, this question, they recall, is not even part of the coalition government agreement.
This does not mean that the Executive is open to big changes. On the contrary, what he wants is to keep his pact with the social agents as much as possible, but he knows that he will have to accept some of the demands of the groups. Yesterday at La Sexta, the Secretary of State for Employment and Social Economy, JoaquÃn PÃ©rez Rey, he assured that “we will work hard, we will listen to our partners very carefully and negotiate whatever is necessaryâTo ensure the approval of the labor reform.
In fact, executive sources explain that according to what Finance Minister MarÃa JesÃºs Montero said on Monday, Further processing is not excluded as an invoice, to incorporate a certain reservation through amendments. Although for the moment, as the political negotiation has not even started, the government is not officially putting it on the table. In this sense, the statements made yesterday by the Minister of the Presidency, FÃ©lix BolaÃ±os, in RNE, must be interpreted, where he assured that “it does not have to be treated as a bill”.

The truth is that any group can request treatment as an invoice, once validated, and, if there is a sufficient majority, force the Executive to do so. But at the moment, what Moncloa is expressing is that this order has not been given to the PSOE and United We Can so that the groups that make up the government are the ones who take this step.
This is perfectly logical because it is still too early to take this step and because, in addition, the executive would send an incoherent message to the central unions and employers, opening up to changes. “We do not want this standard to be changed because it is an agreement between employers and unions, which has balances, which is what makes this standard unique,” BolaÃ±os argued.
But one thing is those starting positions and another is how the talks end. The government is open to amendments other than the âreversalâ of the agreement reached in the social dialogue. And he even welcomes the fact that the nuclear aspects of the reform are not called into question. Technicians, well-informed sources assure, “they will look for possible solutions â,â technical solutions âto arrive at a synthesis between the requests of the parliamentary groups and the respect of the pact with employers and unions.
One of the problems that has already emerged is the prevalence of regional agreements over those of states. The PNV has expressed its reluctance because it is not collected and ERC and EH Bildu are also claiming it. In the case of the Basque Country, the socialist Idoia Mendia, second vice-lehendakari and Minister of Labor and Employment in the government of IÃ±igo Urkullu, defended on Tuesday the agreement signed in 2017 by the four Basque unions (ELA LAB, CC OO and UGT) already guarantees it, but sources of the executive indicate that the PNV “ask for clarification” because “there are doubts about the interpretation, as it is now written in the statute of the workers”.
This is one of the topics that could be discussed. As published THE SPAIN PERIODIC In some of the drafts of the conversations with social workers, section 84.4 of the Status of workerss prevent negotiators of state agreements from having the power to restrict the matters that regional agreements can regulate. The bosses opposed it, but not the unions. And in any case, it is a field that has already started to be explored.
CER, fundamental for governance, also calls for a return to Catalonia the competence to authorize beforehand the files of payment of job. Alongside all these demands, the Government must register entry into the Citizen’s Agreement, if it maintains its will to support labor reform. And although during all these weeks constant appeals for the support of the PP by the ministers will be heard, their vote against is taken for granted. It is even thought that certain calls from outside the popular to get involved in the new union framework can help to unite the majority of the nomination.
The PP non-firm
The government is fully aware that the popular will not give its backing. This Tuesday, in conversations with this newspaper, the deputy secretary general of the PP, Elvira Rodriguez, He explained that labor laws have changed little but that his party does not agree with the corrections introduced because “they reduce the flexibility of the system”. They do not think that the preponderance of sectoral agreements over company agreements is something positive because the latter “are more adapted to reality”. And they think that the new framework does not solve the question of temporality either. His vote against, he assured, is immutable, because the reform has the yes of business leaders “is not enough”.
This condemns the Executive to depend on its investiture majority with the only flexibility offered by the incorporation of the Cs which, according to the Government, saw the vacuum left by the PP. But there is no feeling of nervousness. On the contrary, a certain confidence that the reform will be validated, as when they stressed that there would be an agreement with the unions and the employers and in certain areas we did not quite believe it.
