The president of ATA and vice president of CEOE, Lorenzo Amor, has staged the distance between the Government and the social agents in the negotiation of the extension of the ERTE. “At the moment what we have on the table is not an extension of the ERTE. What we have is a proposal that limits the activities and exemptions to companies and freelancers. An extension does not mean changing the rules of the game in the 91st minute. I do not know if he will go to the Council of Ministers tomorrow, or he will go to an extraordinary council on Friday», Has pointed out.
The negotiation is approaching its final minutes, as the current framework expires with May. The Minister of Social Security, José Luis Escrivá, proposes limiting the exemptions and activities within the framework of the ERTE, changes with which the social agents do not agree.

Differences with the Executive in the extension of benefits for cessation of activity. “One in three freelancers have increased their turnover, yes, but because it was at a minimum. He gives us to buy underwear, we have lost everything in recent months“, has held.
