El Corte Inglés reorganizes the staff of central services with voluntary redundancies

Date: March 21, 2023 Time: 16:26:42

El Corte Inglés expects a reduction in the number of workers dedicated to central and regional administrative services. As a solution, we offer them the transfer to the stores, or in the case of those over 59 years of age, incentivized leave. This is how the group notified the unions this Friday, to which it has detailed its intention to “reorder” the staff of its central services to reinforce the stores, and with which it wants to agree on the number of workers affected and the conditions.

In a statement released, the group chaired by Marta Álvarez details that the objective of this measure is to “strengthen the stores, attend to the good evolution of sales and improve customer service and attention”, and responds to the “modernization of the the processes and systems that the company has implemented in recent months”.

El Corte Inglés has not disclosed the number of departures and relocations that they intend to achieve in the area of ​​central services, so the final figure will come from the negotiation with the unions, which are also working on the revision of the agreement that affects the sector.

A few days ago they put on the table a salary increase that would reflect the impact of prices and the employers would have improved their first offer. Thus, the National Association of Large Distribution Companies, which includes both El Corte Inglés, Carrefour, Leroy Merlin, Alcampo, Apple or Ikea, among others, would have decided to propose a salary increase of 11%. An offer that would beat the first one by four points.

According to sources close to the negotiation consulted by EFE, Anged’s salary proposal would imply a 4% increase this year; 3% in 2024; 2% in 2025 and another 2% in 2026. The new proposal would also include a non-consolidating variable payment guarantee of 2%.
