Aspel requires trade unions which comply with the agreements signed
February 3, 2011
The Professional Association of companies of cleaning (Aspel
), together with the employer provincial Aelma, has required the urgent call of the Negotiating Committee of collective cleaning of buildings and premises of the community of Madrid CC OO and UGT unions to make collective agreements between employers and trade unions in the field of employment and collective bargaining.
As explains the director of labour relations of Aspel, Manuel Lake, "the agreement signed in his day is a wage increase for this year of 4'4 %, a far cry from the agreement in the field of employment which set it at 2%". In his words, "this salary increase could mean massive job destruction to not be able to impact this increase in existing contracts".
For this reason, and with the aim of protecting the employment of almost 78,000 workers cleaning that they represent both employers require compliance with signed agreements to trade unions. Otherwise, "could be put in a very difficult situation to many companies with the consequent loss of jobs", says Lake. In addition, the representative of Aspel recalls that "during the past three years, the cleaning workers have had a wage increase from the 3'4 % above the CPI".
