PNV, EH Bildu and PSE-EE agree to ask the Basque government to promote a minimum wage higher than the state wage


Thus, “always respecting collective bargaining”, they manifest “the ease” of unions and employers agreeing on a minimum wage based on the socio-economic realities of the Basque Country. EH Bildu filed a motion last Monday to claim the setting of a minimum wage of 1400 euros.

PNV, EH Bildu and PSE-EE have agreed to demand that the Basque government adopt a interprofessional minimum wage (SMI) superior to the Spanish state.

According to the four-point agreement, to which EITB Media has had access, the three formations urge, in particular, the executive of the Basque Autonomous Community to “always respect the autonomy of the social actors” promoting that the inter-professional agreement sets a minimum wage for collective bargaining “that corresponds to the socio-economic reality of the Basque Country”.

So “always respecting collective bargaining”, they say “the convenience” for trade unions and employers to agree, within the framework of the Inter-Professional Agreement, on a minimum wage for collective bargaining in the Basque Country based on the socio-economic reality of the Basque Country.

For this reason, they are urging the Basque government to continue adopting “a proactive attitude” for the adoption of the necessary measures to make progress in this commitment and thereby “defend and promote, in all employment and social dialogue frameworks, the improvement of wages and working conditions for workers in the Basque Country”.

The agreement also appreciates and recognizes “the importance of increasing the Minimum Interprofessional Wage”, which directly benefits more than 50,000 workers of Euskadi.

In this connection, EH Bildu filed a motion last Monday in the Basque Parliament for the introduction of a minimum wage of 1400 euros in Alava, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa. In this sense, the agreement has been reached by the three formations does not state an amount.

The EH Bildu MP, Arkaitz Rodríguez, believes that “there is a way, the possibility” of “setting the minimum wage that we need here” and believes that “it is a matter of political will”.
