The CEOE calls on the Government of Pedro Sánchez not to extend it and listen to the CCAA
The businessmen agreed with the government on the controversial reform of the ERTE, although it did not fully convince them. However, the employers are not satisfied with the performance of the Executive. For this reason, he has explicitly asked the Pedro Sánchez government not to extend the state of alarm again.
The President of the CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, has assured that “Does not see it necessary” for Spain to continue in a state of alarm, and has asked the Government to listen to the autonomous communities and municipalities when making decisions about the de-escalation phases.
Garamendi has assured that if the Council of Ministers approves on Tuesday an extension of the state of alarm by means of a royal decree “We will not like it.”
«We are very bored of the royal decrees, we want to talk about the bills », Garamendi said in an interview in El Economista, He has asked that the minimum income that the Government completes can be processed through the latter normative figure in the Congress of Deputies.
“I think that the state of alarm and the situation between now and December need now what it takes, but with a conjunctural approach. Structural issues cannot be raised now, “the CEOE president has made clear regarding the minimum vital income, reports Europa Press.
Regarding the pact signed last week to extend the ERTEs by force majeure until June 30, separating them from the state of alarm, and to establish their progressive departure, Garamendi has assured that in the negotiation managed to “improve” some pointsAlthough not extend it until December.
“I would like you to see what was the document that was sent to us on a Sunday” whose approval in the Council of Ministers of that following Tuesday “stopped”, and could compare it with “the one we signed a week later”, said the president of the CEOE.
In said negotiation, he pointed out, the employers managed to modify the employment guarantee clause, reducing the period from one year to six months, and fixing the moment in which said guarantee begins to compute on the return to activity of the first worker and not the last.
Regarding the possibility of Spain claiming access to the European reconstruction fund, Garamendi has considered that “it is easier to ask for the money sooner than later”, because at the moment “the markets are going to understand it, due to the situation we have, whenever let’s spend it on short-term issues«.
