The employees of the travel agencies in ERTE have not received benefits since April


The trade association complains to the Ombudsman for the “disruptions” of the public administration in the management of this new ERTE

The more than 2,500 travel agency workers currently affected by a sectoral ERTE, one of the new mechanisms called RED launched by the government through the labor reform to protect a specific activity in the face of a temporary crisis, have not yet received a euro. of the benefit they should have received since April. The Travel Professional Association (SPV), which represents a large number of travel agency staff, reported this this week, which has even filed a complaint with the Ombudsman for “disruptions” by the public administration in the management of these new ERTEs.

In addition, it sent the letter to the Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz; to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, and the Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration, José Luis Escrivá, to denounce that the workers do not receive their benefits because the SEPE “does not have the resources” has these files.

In the letter, the union explains that the workers affected by ERTE have already submitted all documentation and should have received this income on the June payroll, two months after the file was closed.

It is therefore three months late in collecting benefits from a group of those hardest hit by the pandemic, as many have been in this ERTE situation for more than two years since the onset of this health crisis.

SEPE’s provincial delegations state that the agency currently “does not have the computer systems to process these files and automate payment”. Likewise, they acknowledge that there is no prediction that this issue will be resolved and that victims will likely not be able to enter the payment of benefits in the coming months.
