Díaz once again insists on companies with benefits that increased wages

Date: March 27, 2023 Time: 13:53:48

The second vice president of the Government and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, has once again asked the companies that managed to obtain benefits to raise the salaries of the workforce. She has thus claimed it in an act in Santander this Saturday where she has transferred her “solidarity and commitment” to the Aspla works council, which has requested her mediation in the conflict, which is celebrating its 35th day of strike today.

“Our absolute solidarity with you, with your families. We know very well what it is to be on strike for 35 days, we know it very well, therefore, all the commitment and the need for companies in our country to understand once and for all that with what we are living we have to raise wages,” Diaz said. The staff has gathered at the gates of the Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos on the occasion of the listening act programmed by the Sumar platform in the city, holding a banner that read ‘For a dignified agreement and for the improvement of labor treatment in Aspla’.

The minister stressed that “this country is made with workers, with dignity, with rights, with decent wages and more in a company like yours that is key to your regions. All the solidarity and commitment and we wish you the greatest”. “It is not decent that a company that has profits of more than 30 million euros does not revalue the wages of workers,” Díaz assessed regarding Aspla during her intervention at the event.

As has been argued, “companies have to be exemplary”, especially when “people are having such a hard time” due to the rise in inflation. “I ask the companies that earn benefits in our country to fulfill their mission and tell their workers that they are decent companies and that they are going to raise their wages,” he said. In his opinion, the Aspla workers “deserve respect.” Subsequently, the members of the Aspla strike committee went to the Hotel Sardinero to show their protest there.

After the demonstration this Friday through the streets of Torrelavega, which brought together 4,000 people, according to the committee, and today’s concentration, next Monday, March 6, a new meeting is scheduled between the Management and the company committee at the Cantabrian Institute for Safety and Health at Work (ICASST), starting at 4:30 p.m., to resume negotiations.

Díaz censors Feijóo’s “joy”

The second vice-president of the Government has censured this Saturday the president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, for “being happy” about the transfer of the Ferrovial headquarters to the Netherlands. “He is a great patriot,” Díaz ironized. In addition, she has urged the leader of the PP to show his “total disagreement” with Ferrovial’s decision and his rejection of tax “dumping”.

In the words of the vice president, the popular leader is wrong because “he confuses the Government with his country, and it would be good if he did not confuse the Spanish with the bad example of Ferrovial.” Díaz has considered “an indignity that a Spanish company flees to another country simply for tax reasons” and has ensured that Ferrovial’s contribution to the public coffers in Spain “was very small”.

Supporter of ending “tax privileges” in Spain because, she has assured, the effective rate at which large companies are quoted “is 3.8%”, she has opted for Spain to lead a “tax harmonization” in Europe and a tax reform of public revenue in depth”.

And he has asked Feijóo to join the Government to demand that Ferrovial, “that great company that did business on the back of the public administration and public procurement”, secure all jobs in Spain and reconsider its decision.

In addition, Yolanda Díaz has asked to give value to the work of the Government of Spain, which is “leaving its skin”, especially because it has as an “adversary” what in its opinion represents “the worst of politics”. “It reminds us of the usual PP, the real one, the one we know, the one who told us that Spain would sink, that we will raise it up,” criticized Díaz, who sees it as “unworthy” that a small business “pays more taxes than a large IBEX-35 corporation”. In this sense, she has contrasted “the joy” of the PP with Sumar, which “is not about the country sinking. We are not happy because a large company is leaving”, she has added.
