The CEOE and the unions give the green light to extend the extension of the ERTE until May

The CEOE and the unions have approved this Tuesday to extend the extension of the Temporary Employment Regulation Files (FOR HIM) Until May 31.

The Government was waiting for the social agents approve the last proposal you presented at the negotiating table Monday for the extension of the ERTE until May 31, which provides for the automatic extension of all procedures, under the same conditions that were operating.

The employers’ association, which seemed more reticent to this extension given that the employment safeguard clause, has finally decided to unanimously approve the working document. “The governing bodies of CEOE, meeting this Tuesday with ordinary character, have unanimously decided to approve the document on the extension of temporary employment regulation files (ERTE) until next May 31 “, they have announced in a statement to which they have had access Vozpópuli.

CCOO has met this Tuesday with its Executive Committee at 9:00 am to assess the latest Government proposal. Cepyme, for its part, has summoned its Executive this afternoon, while CEOE has met its Board of Directors.

In the case of UGT, the union already informed its Executive last week of the content of the extension, which will not entail changes of draft with respect to the current regulation, although it does plan to streamline the processing of these procedures, as advanced by the Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, a few days ago.

The Government’s approach was to renew en bloc all current mechanisms for the protection of workers and companies

Specifically, the proposal is to extend all ERTE no need for new administrative authorizations, which will save management and bureaucratic costs, and could avoid a new collision in the procedures by the State Public Employment Service (SEPE).

Administrative authorization

At the same time, it introduces an automatic mechanism for switching between the so-called impediment and limitation ERTE so that it can be transit between both types of ERTE without the need for administrative authorization.

For the rest, the Government’s approach was to renew en bloc all current mechanisms of protection of workers and companies, although it was not ruled out that new sectors were added to the category of ‘ultra-protected’, according to the same sources.

Although the agreement has been reached this Tuesday, the Government is expected to approve the extension of the ERTE in a royal decree-law in the Council of Ministers next week, on January 26, five days before the current ERTE decline, on the 31st.

Parallel to the negotiation of the extension of the ERTE, the Ministry of Social Security began a dialogue on Tuesday with the main associations of autonomous (ATA, UPTA and UATAE) to extend protection measures and analyze the possibility of exempting the payment of quotas to self-employed workers who are harmed by the administrative restrictions to stop the pandemic.
