Yolanda Díaz: “The Spanish employers are not up to the country and the unions have reasons to mobilize”

The second vice president of the Government, Yolanda Díaz, has once again expressly defended this Monday the demonstrations announced by the unions to demand the revaluation of wages. Asked in an interview on Cadena SER about her statements last week in which she supported these mobilizations and was very critical of the CEOE, Díaz assured that “the unions have reasons to go out on the streets against the bosses ”.

The vice-president has lamented that the employers got up from the negotiating table with the unions last May and that for this reason there are thousands of collective agreements blocked throughout the country: “The employers got up from a table saying that they do not want revalue wages. Only 450 collective agreements have been signed when 2,000 should have been signed. At this time the bosses are not up to the level of their country. I ask for height of sight, ”she criticized.

Regarding the position of the socialist part of the Executive, which has publicly distanced itself from that position of Yolanda Díaz, the second vice president and leader of United We Can in the coalition has said she is convinced that her partners “respect the right to mobilization” and that they also aspire to the revaluation of wages.
