The unions ask the parliamentary groups to stop the ere of CaixaBank. The unions present in CaixaBank have sent letters to all the parliamentary groups of the Congress of Deputies asking them to put pressure to curb ERE has launched an entity owned as to 16.1% by the State . “We urge you to get actively involved to stop this savage and unjustified process and do not allow yourself to be made accomplices of it,” the letter reads.
CCOO, SECB-ASIP, UGT, ACCAM, SATE-FORO, CGT, SESFI, UOB, FEC, SIB, ACB-BANKIA and LAB-ELA maintain that the ere proposed by the bank is “absolutely abusive” and emphasize that “all this imposition, not negotiation , occurs within a legal framework that makes it possible because the agreement with the unions is not needed and the control that the labor inspection can exercise was seriously affected by the labor reform of 2012 “, which will remain in force “as long as there is no real will to repeal it.”
“This ere is to be justified for productive and organizational reasons. Gandhi said that ‘on earth there is enough to meet the needs of all, but not enough to satisfy the greed of some ‘. It would seem that such a phrase describes very well what intends the direction that happens in our company.
As an image is worth a thousand words, we must point out that the need to include dozens of people in the ere has its origin in the salary increase of the president -the salary has tripled- That, without counting the salary increases of other managers “, denounces the letter.
“In summary, the greed of a few means the dismissal of 8,300 people and the cut of wages for the rest. At Caixabank we are more than 44,000 people threatened with dismissal. We are an entity owned by the State and, therefore, also by the whole of the citizenship that cannot be left out of this situation “, he concludes.
CaixaBank’s management offered the unions on Tuesday to reduce by 500 the 8,291 dismissals raised at the beginning of the negotiations and relocate them within the bank or in subsidiaries or affiliates of the group. It also reaffirmed its approach to limit the exits of personnel over 50 years of age to 50%.
