Half an hour before, at half past five in the afternoon, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, and the Chairman of the Board, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, signed the agreement in Madrid for the viability of the Siro company, the number two of the Autonomous Government of Castilla y León, Juan García-Gallardo, surprised at the headquarters of the Autonomous Executive with his own announcement: the cut of 20 million euros to the social dialogue agents, that is to say to CEOE Castilla y León and the CC.OO and UGT unions.
Gallardo, who has appeared accompanied by the Minister of Industry, Mariano Veganzones, has assured that the Vox and PP government agreement is thus fulfilled to "reduce superfluous and ineffective spending, for the benefit of society and in the face of the social emergency."
It is, as he has pointed out, to reduce 50 percent of public spending linked to social agents, eliminating direct subsidies for social dialogue and prevention of occupational risks to CEOE, CCOO and UGT.
The reduction of 20 million is applied in ten different lines with CEOE and CCOO and UGT as almost the only recipients. The measure was on the table in the Governing Council last Thursday, where "it was finalized", according to Gallardo, although it did not seal a formal agreement nor was it reported later.
