Sánchez demands that employers sit down with unions to distribute benefits

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has demanded that the employers sit down with the unions to agree on collective bargaining that distributes the benefits of large companies with “justice” since in the last decade workers have lost purchasing power.

“That is why it is so important to raise the minimum wage or it is relevant to revalue pensions … and that is why we also demand that the employers sit down with the unions and that those benefits that large companies have are not only taken by those at the top, but also by the workers of those large companies, “said Sánchez during the closing of the Municipal Convention of the PSOE in Andalusia where he officially presented the slogan of the party “Defend what you think”.

A slogan that defends -he said- “what the majority thinks”, which is for example to be aware that “a pension system is guaranteed with decent salaries that will be the decent pensions of tomorrow”.

“They said for months that we were not going to be able to reform pensions and those who when they governed devalued and froze them said so. When it is just the opposite, “said Sánchez in an act before about 850 people in which the secretary general of the PSOE in Andalusia, Juan Espadas; the mayor of Huelva, Gabriel Cruz, and the president of the Diputación de Huelva, María Eugenia Limón.

Also surrounded by the ministers of Finance and Science and Innovation, María Jesús Montero and Diana Morant, respectively, Sánchez, has made it clear that “today, tomorrow and always we will defend the revaluation of pensions as the best way to guarantee a dignified retirement”.

The President of the Government and Secretary General of the PSOE has defended that “what you think is important” and “no matter the noise, tension, disqualification or insults” of those who “have nothing else to offer citizens and can not show it because they do not connect with demands of the social majority. “

He has warned that the “neoliberal and cut” policies of the government of Mariano Rajoy will need a decade “of progressive policies” to be reversed, and has stressed that the working middle class although it has gained 10% in real wages has lost purchasing power with the increase of 17% in prices in recent years.

“And that is why you have to sit down (the employers) so that in collective bargaining the benefits are distributed fairly,” he stressed.
