Spain - Negotiations for a framework agreement pending - April 30, 2017

Talks to renew the wage pact for 2017 have been open for half a year and the advance was with much slowness and tension. The trade union confederations showed their disgust, in the May Day presentation, at the progress of the negotiations and have warned that the time for talks has been exhausted. The employers’ organisation CEOE had presented proposals for a general agreement (AENC) 2017 that included a salary increase between 1.0% and 2.0%, plus a variable 0.5%, to be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. At the general assembly of the CEOE, the government praised the social partners who, since 1979, and until the signing in 2015 of the 3rd Agreement on Employment and Collective Bargaining, signed by the CEOE, CEPYME, CC.OO and UGT, always reached agreements.
