Spain - Unions oppose pay freeze in public sector - August 26, 2009

The president of the FSP-UGT public services federation, Julio Lacuerda, has called for a "calm, measured and rigorous" analysis of the current economic situation as part of pay negotiations with the government. He rejected the idea of a pay freeze put forward by one minister and underlined the need for a fair outcome for the 2.5 million workers in the public sector.

The federation also wants to see progress on a number of statutes covering public service workers that were agreed two years ago but not yet implemented.

Earlier, the FSC-CCOO public services federation clarified its opposition to any proposal to freeze the pay of public sector workers. This federation also warned against job cuts at such a crucial time when it is vital that the public sector maintains its role in delivering services to those worst affected by the crisis.
