Relations between the Government and officials are not going through their best moment. To the discomfort of the centrals due to the loss of purchasing power of public employees, now joins the poor harmony in the negotiation of the Second Mobility Agreement for Civil Servants.
The negotiation proposal that has been put on the table by the Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, "limits geographical mobility and the professional promotion of public employees by introducing obstacles in transfer competitions in departments and agencies of the General Administration of the State (AGE)”, CSIF sources explain to ABC.
The union chaired by Miguel Borra tells this newspaper that it is opposed to "any type of limitation" in the mobility of public employees between administrations, whether state, regional or local, and warns that "the best way to prevent employees in the AGE request their transfer to organizations and departments of other administrations is to improve their working conditions”, with measures such as the implementation of 35 hours per week or eliminating pay inequalities for doing the same work.
For CSIF, the weight that the wording of the mobility agreement grants to seniority to request a transfer is also "insufficient", and they do not share the requirement of having five years of previous professional experience. «The drafting of this II agreement is a new example of the systematic mistreatment that the Government exerts on public employees who, in addition, see how it continues to refuse to update their salaries to compensate for the loss of purchasing power that they have suffered in the last 12 years; and how the head of the Treasury continues to remain silent to this just claim, "point out the union sources.
From CSIF it is stated that "this situation is unsustainable" and that public administration workers cannot sacrifice more than they have already done. For this reason, they warn the Government that "it will have a hot autumn in the streets of all of Spain if it does not give a prompt response in the Budgets or as it considers, to the fair salary claims of public employees."
CSIF and the platform that brings together the majority unions of the Police and Civil Guard (Jusapol), have already called protests throughout Spain on June 22 to demand compensation for the price spiral.
