The employers’ association and trade unions will resume negotiations on the Metal de Bizkaia agreement tomorrow


This is the thirteenth meeting between the parties and the last took place on September 26. Since that meeting, the unions have declared new strikes for October 27 and 28 and November 2, although they have done so separately: CCOO, UGT and LAB on the one hand; on the other side ELA.

The Biscay Metallurgy Federation (FVEM) and the trade unions will resume negotiations on the Biscay Metals Sector Agreement tomorrow, Thursday.

This week’s meeting is the thirteenth celebrated by both parties. The last appointment was on September 26, in which no agreement was reached after the last proposal from the employers’ association a few days earlier.

Since that meeting, the unions have announced three new strike days (27 and 28 October and 2 November), although they did it separately: on the one hand the majority unions at the negotiating table CCOO, LAB, UGT, ESK, CGT and CNT and on the other hand ELA. The divisions between the unions are due to their conflicting views on the approach to the negotiations and the duration of the strike to be called.

FVEM employers consider these new strikes “irresponsible” and have warned unions that “if they don’t move, there can be no deal”. In this sense, he recalls that he submitted three proposals as part of the negotiation process.

All unions agree that FEVEM does not have the will to negotiate to extend the deal and that it is blocking the negotiations. Majority unions at the negotiating table have warned that if after the three new days of strike there is “no agreement” in the agreement negotiations, they will continue to call new phases of strike. For its part, ELA has also been willing to go on indefinite strike if no agreement is reached during the strike days.
