The Prime Vice President and Minister for Economic Affairs, Nadia Calvin, has affirmed that the unions are “aware of the situation” in which they are, in such a way that “surely they will continue to behave responsibly” in their demands. “We all have to remain very responsible to get the recovery on track,” he adds.

In an interview with The mail, collected by Europa Press, Calviño also defends that “there is a lot of legislature left” and believes that what the “country needs is more calm and less tension.” “We are focused on deploying the recovery plan because, in addition, it is what Spain needs,” he defends.

After noting that international organizations “agree that Spain will be one of the engines of recovery”, he argues that the objective “is not a temporary rebound but a solid recovery”. “The European Commission forecasts point to an average growth of close to 5% between now and 2023. That is an intense recovery,” he values.

On the other hand, he acknowledges that it has been a few months “with a very strong rise in prices” and says that the Executive is “sensitive” and will try “to find solutions.”

Questioned by the attitude of the unions, she affirms that she has had a very hard twenty-one months, with a tremendously delicate economic situation and that, “thanks to the efforts of all, with a high fiscal impact, it has been possible to protect a base on which to sustain the Recovery”. “We all have to remain very responsible to get the recovery on track,” he adds.

Thus, he does not believe that he should ask the unions for restraint in their demands because “they are aware of the situation we are in”. “They will surely continue to behave responsibly, given that we are in an incipient recovery and we all want it to be sustained and sustainable,” he says.

Regarding the labor reform, he points out four elements that he sees as “fundamental”: “A hiring reform to reduce temporary employment; adequate regulation of subcontractors to reduce precariousness; the rebalancing of collective bargaining and a new internal flexibility mechanism for companies that will be inspired by the positive experience of the ERTE ”.

Likewise, he says he trusts the ability of the social agents to reach agreements and stresses that “a lot has been worked with the representatives of the employers and the unions to be able to reach an agreement before the end of the year”.

“They know that we have a lot at stake. Both unions and employers are interested in having a framework that provides legal certainty and is adapted to the economic phase in which we are, ”he defends.
