The BBVA has proposed to the unions reduce 350 layoffs initially raised in the ERE will carry out , which would departures from 3798-3448 . As explained by CCOO, the majority central bank in the bank, the entity has proposed to transfer these 350 affected workers to remote client management positions .
To make this reduction, the union pointed out, the bank proposes that said workers have geographical mobility without paying up to 150 kilometers and paid from that distance with a supplement of 3,000 euros per year for a period of three years. CCOO has criticized that the bank continues without providing ” not a single detail of the economic conditions that it intends to offer to the rest of the people it proposes to dismiss.”
The union has warned that it considers ” totally insufficient that the figure can only be lowered with relocations” and has proposed a series of measures to reduce this global figure, such as taking into account the layoffs and voluntary departures since January 1, the vegetative departures (retirements and others) produced and planned this year and next, and the positions covered by temporary workers and temporary employment agencies (ETTs).
“Once we can conclude this number, we have proposed a 100% voluntary process with early retirement . Regarding the proposed geographical mobility, we have expressed our total rejection , both to the measure and to the economic conditions,” added the central. The next and last meeting of the pre-negotiation part foreseen by the banking collective agreement will take place on May 5. On the 6th, therefore, the negotiation phase foreseen by the Workers’ Statute will begin.
