The first vice president of the Government, Nadia Calviño , has today been in favor of extending the Temporary Employment Regulation Files ( ERTE ) as long as it is necessary to protect workers affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Calviño made these statements during his participation in an event organized by the Valencian employers’ association CEV and the newspaper Levante-EMV, of the Prensa Ibérica group, with the sponsorship of Global Omnium and Broseta Abogados. In it, she has also declared herself in favor of approving the labor reform before the end of the year to give legal security to workers and employees.
The economic head of the country thus advocates to continue with the protection of workers who have been affected by the economic crisis that the coronavirus has brought with it.
The Central Government already advanced that their intention was precisely to extend them beyond September 30, the deadline on which they expired.
For his part, the president of Prensa Ibérica, Javier Moll, agreed with the vice president of the Government that the current economic situation is complex but highlighted the strength of the Valencian business fabric and of the entire Valencian Community.
The president of Prensa Valenciana stressed that the growth forecasts for autonomy place it at around 6.7%, ten tenths more than the rest of Spain.
Moll delved into the current challenges of the Spanish economy, with a decrease in the number of unemployed but also that of contributors to Social Security. Added to this is the inflation of 3.3% driven by the rise in the price of electricity and the negotiation for the increase in the minimum interprofessional wage (SMI).
Calviño, who has also held a meeting with the president of the Valencian Generalitat, Ximo Puig, during his visit to that community, has recognized that the reform of the financing model, which has expired for several years, is “complex” and that the Government “It will have to be addressed with the rest of the territories”, although confidence has been shown that “we will find solutions in the coming years”, reports Julia Ruiz .
