Together with the ERTE, the principle of agreement also between the Ministry of Social Security and the self-employed groups on the ‘unemployment’ aid for self-employed workers approved during the pandemic. The Government has agreed to maintain the extraordinary benefit for cessation of activity created for low-income self-employed workers, which it initially proposed to abolish. The four benefits are thus maintained until January 31, although access is restricted for the low-income, explain sources of the negotiation to elDiario.es.
The ATA and UPTA collectives have been the first to communicate the principle of agreement through social networks. In the Social Security they have not yet informed about it.
In ATA, the association of freelancers that is part of CEOE, they point out that the latest offer from the Government must be submitted to internal consultation, as is the case with the ERTE. The employers vote tonight on both issues, in an executive committee convened at 9:30 p.m. this Monday.
The intention of the Government is to take the extension of the ERTE and that of the self-employed aid to the Council of Ministers this Tuesday, September 28, when the green light is also provided for the increase in the minimum interprofessional salary to 965 euros, 15 euros more per month compared to the current 950.
