Pre-agreement of unions and employers in the metal strike in Cádiz

  • The pre-agreement, which must now be ratified by the union delegates of the companies, is reached after ten hours of negotiation

  • In Industry they highlight the role it has had in the conversations, to approximate positions, of the Minister Reyes Maroto

The unions and the Federation of Metal Entrepreneurs of Cádiz (FEMCA) reached a preliminary agreement on Wednesday that will put end to indefinite strike that the workers of the sector of the province have maintained for nine days.

In the fourth meeting held in Seville since the beginning of the indefinite strike, the employers and the union representatives of the UGT and CCOO achieved, after more than ten hours of debate, a pre-agreement which must now be ratified by the union delegates of the companies, after which the signature will proceed, union sources reported.

The negotiation, held within the Andalusian Council of Labor Relations, a labor mediation body of the Employment Department of the Junta de Andalucía, lasted for a little over ten hours.

From the Government of Pedro Sánchez, it is emphasized that the Minister of Industry, Reyes Maroto, has been a “fundamental piece in reaching a consensus between the parties.” In the ministry, Maroto’s team indicates that she has worked “discreetly so that the parties would sit down “and reach a preliminary agreement, informs Juanma Romero.

The content of the pre-agreement will not be released until this Thursday, once they have known it the workers themselves of the companies that have to vote for it.
