Spain -Wage growth or moderation divides employers and unions in salary pact -May 15, 2014

Employers’ organisations CEOE and CEPYME on the one hand, and trade unions CCOO and UGT on the other, have started negotiations over the framework agreement on pay.

Employers’ organisations CEOE and CEPYME on the one hand, and trade unions CCOO and UGT on the other, have started negotiations over the framework agreement on pay. The framework agreement concluded at the national level between social partners sets the stage for collective agreement negotiations and in effect establishes the bounds of wage demands and offers. UGT and CCOO have started the bargaining round stating they accepted pay freezes in the last two agreements (2010 and 2012) and therefore expect this year’s agreement to outpace inflation. Employers, however, have argued that the recovery is fragile and it is too early to start increasing wages.
