This has been agreed by the Government and the unions, following a meeting held on Monday attended by Minister Reyes Maroto, the secretary general of UGT-Fica, Pedro Leaves, and the secretary general of CC.OO. of Industry, Agustín Martín.
According to a joint statement, the meeting also addressed the difficulties that, for different reasons, are going through industrial companies in the country, with the aim of working together to find the best solutions to their current situation.
The trade union organizations and the Government consider that, once their processing is finished, the Statute for the Electro-Intensive Consumer will be the general frame of reference from which they will work to improve competitiveness, develop industrial capacities and maintain industrial employment.
Likewise, trade union organizations and the Government have reaffirmed their willingness to continue talking and working in a coordinated manner to strengthen a “solid, competitive and guarantor of labor stability in all its sectors” industry.
Also present at the meeting were the General Director of Industry and SMEs, Galo Gutiérrez-Monzonís, the head of Industrial and Sector Policy of CC.OO., José Manuel Casado, and the Deputy Secretary General of the UGT-FICA Industry Federation Antonio Deusa.
