His new proposal, four points above the initial one, is still far from that of the unions, with a salary increase of 18%
MADRID, 17 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The National Association of Large Distribution Companies (Anged), which includes companies such as El Corte Inglés, Carrefour or Ikea, among others, has raised its offer of a minimum four-year fixed salary increase by four points, from 7% to 11% within the framework of the negotiation of the new agreement for department stores, the largest in Spain, affecting some 260,000 workers.
Specifically, as Fetico explained, said salary increase will be distributed as follows: 4% in 2023, 3% in 2024, 2% in 2025 and 2% in 2026, to which is added a non-consolidable variable payment guarantee. of 2%.
"Finally, common sense has prevailed, I have been saying for months that Anged can initially assume a 12% increase, the initial proposal left the social commitment of large companies in the country and their image in a bad place. We must build a salary increase even greater than this proposal, but between 11% and 18% are sure that we have a meeting place", said the general secretary of Fetico, Antonio Pérez.
Likewise, as the union has indicated, in the meeting held this Friday, work has been done on technical aspects of the collective agreement that "make it a benchmark for labor legislation in the country."
"I am sure that now we will pick up the negotiating speed necessary to reach an agreement as soon as possible, working people cannot wait for their salaries to be raised", Pérez highlighted.
From the unions, they have proposed a salary increase of 18% in four years, at a rate of 4.225% per year, to which is added a drop in working hours to 1,758 hours, compared to the current 1,770, a single payment upon signing the agreement of a non-consolidable amount of 4.5% and a reduction of 25% on holidays and Sundays to work (free 75%).
