The secretary general of CCOO, Unai Sordo, has warned the president of the PP, Pablo Casado, that the unions will never renegotiate downward the "most important" measure that the Government has taken, which has been the rise to 900 euros monthly minimum interprofessional salary (SMI).
Speaking to EFE, Sordo said that if you really want to value social dialogue and recover political consensus, what you have to do is repeal the labor and pension reforms that the PP carried out unilaterally in 2012 and 2013, without social agreement nor political
"That it would be an important message, if you really want to value the social dialogue, because this sounds like what it sounds, to find an excuse of bad payer to try to reverse the most important measure that has been taken in this last period, which has been the rise of the SMI to 900 euros, "he said.
In his opinion, only after the repeal of the unilateral reforms of the PP can the social agents be summoned to "reconstruct a framework of labor relations and viable pensions in the future".
Married was asked yesterday if he would undo the rise of the SMI to 900 euros, to which he replied that what he will do if he reaches the Executive "is to fulfill (…) the negotiation that the Government arrived with employers and unions at 850 euros in the year 2020 ".
