Spain - Agreement in general state administration welcomed - August 12, 2009

The two main public service federations, FSC-CCOO and FSP-UGT, have signed the third agreement covering workers in the general state administration. The agreement covers around 60,000 workers across Spain and was also signed by the CSI-CSIF, CIG and ELA trade unions.

The unions are positive about the agreement and its improvements in pay. The agreement runs until 31 December 2009 and confirms a range of increases including the 1% increase in the wage bill established by the 2009 budget, 0.37% in additional funds from 2007-2009, 2% in productivity payments and an overall sum of Euro 90,000 arising from the extension of the 2004 agreement. Unions are especially happy about the overall increase in funding of Euro 1.2 million that was not included in the government's original offer.
