Spain is a low-wage nation in comparison with the remainder of the European Union. But, with respect to the worldwide economic system, the salaries are above common. Many corporations benefit from this circumstance to relocate their manufacturing, looking for decrease salaries that permit them to achieve competitiveness. The victims of this quite common course of are the staff in Spain, to whom Sumar needs to provide larger safety than that offered by laws till now. The parliamentary group led by Yolanda Díaz registered this Thursday a invoice to change the Workers' Statute, in order to forestall collective dismissals and terminations of contracts for goal causes for corporations that determine to switch their exercise. It can also be dedicated to forcing the reimbursement of support obtained in earlier years and guaranteeing larger transparency in relocation processes.

Sumar's textual content denounces that relocations generate “disinvestment and the closure of productive centers, with the consequent reduction of the economic fabric and destruction of jobs.” Likewise, they determine the chance of “unbalancing the position of the parties in the collective bargaining against the social part, resulting in a worsening of working conditions.” Given this prognosis, they take into account it “fundamental” to undertake measures “that prevent the negative effects of these relocations.” It already warns of some instruments for this function on the European stage, such because the reimbursement of funds if relocations happen. “Following the community example, it is necessary to establish concrete measures that protect jobs and working conditions.”

The foremost coverage proposed by the textual content is to forestall corporations from transferring their industrial, productive or enterprise exercise to territories that aren’t a part of the EU or nations that aren’t signatories of the frequent financial house from the next measures: collective dismissals and terminations of contracts. for goal causes, apply substantial modifications to working circumstances or disapply what’s included in collective agreements. “If these limitations are not met, the measures applied will be considered carried out in violation of the law, whether adopted before or after the transfer, provided that the direct or indirect link with it is proven,” the doc signifies.

Likewise, Sumar proposes to pressure corporations that relocate and have taken benefit of ERTEs or measures contemplated within the RED mechanism within the earlier 4 years to return the related advantages.

Along the identical strains, the minority group within the Government proposes extra limitations to make sure jobs. Among them is the duty to current a viability plan when an possession switch operation happens if the corporate or productive unit has 50 or extra employees. “To prepare this plan, a consultation period will be opened between the selling company, the buyer and the legal representation of the workers.” From then on, a sequence of deadlines are established during which the corporate must justify why sustaining the exercise is unattainable. “In the event that the consultation period ends without an agreement, the selling company will submit its feasibility plan to the labor authority. “Workers will have a right of first refusal and withdrawal for the acquisition of the productive unit,” the textual content specifies.

The invoice to ensure the rights of employees in processes of relocation and switch of productive items was registered by deputies Verónica Martínez and Aina Vidal. The parliamentary group offers some examples of current disinvestments and relocations that encourage it to current this proposal: it mentions the case of Forbia Porriño and Maderas Fiber, the sale of Alcoa Avilés and Coruña, the collective dismissal of Sekurit and appears even additional again, in reference to the historic relocations of H&M or Zara.
