All factions in the Basque Parliament, except PP+Cs and Vox, have demanded that the Basque government promote a minimum interprofessional salary (SMI) higher than the Spanish state, now set at 1,080 euros.

PNV, EH Bildu, PSE-EE and Elkarrekin Podemos-IU have agreed on an amendment to the transaction expressing the ease of reaching an agreement under the interprofessional agreement between the Confebask employers and unions to to specify minimum wages for collective bargaining based on the socio-economic reality of the Basque Autonomous Community.

This Thursday, a motion by EH Bildu was discussed in which the coalition urged the Basque government to promote an inter-professional agreement between companies and unions to increase the SMI to 1,400 euros per month, 320 euros more than the current rate in the state if a very Spanish one. However, the amendment finally negotiated by the PNV, EH Bildu, PSE-EE and Elkarrekin Podemos-IU does not state an amount.

The parliamentarian of EH BilduArkaitz Rodríguez, promoter of the initiative, has appreciated the agreement reached because it is the “first time” that the Basque Parliament has taken such a clear favorable position towards an IMS adapted to the Basque Autonomous Community, as it is part of the Basque government to take a leading role in this area and because it calls on employers to sit down and negotiate.

Jon Airtza (GDP) acknowledged that this agreement is “outright positive”, recalled that the Basque government has long defended inter-professional agreements to improve wages and trusted that all social actors are at the table.

Ekain Rico (PSE-EE) appreciated the SMI approved by the government of Pedro Sánchez and stressed that today the Basque Parliament issued a “clear and strong” call to employers and unions in collective bargaining to improve wages.

Jon Hernandez (Elkarrekin Podemos-IU) is also very satisfied with the agreement and has stated that the Basque employers are the “main obstacle” to a salary more in line with the Basque reality.

Laura Garrido, MP of PP+Cshas said it is a “propaganda” deal because the SMI is a state jurisdiction and criminalizes businessmen.

the parliamentarian of voxAmaia Martínez, does not intervene in the debate, but votes against.
