Date: June 25, 2024 Time: 14:18:25

Renfe opens the door to incorporate more than 1,700 temporary employees of its subsidiary Logirail, dedicated to the provision of ground services, as permanent personnel. To Formalize This Improvement of Conditions, the Railway Operator Has Put on the Table Publish AN OFFER of Employment Puffo (Oep) Still Without Date Awaiting RECEPERA DE REDERA REDERA Bir The Approval From the Ministry of Finance and public function for Budgetary rules .

As the company advanced to the majority unions, Renfe is in talks with the department headed by María Jesús Montero to proceed with the certainty of the employment of its subsidiary and thus reduce the temporary rate, which according to union sources, is the highest of all Spanish public companies. The unions, for their part, have been demanding the consolidation of 1,804 jobs from the OPE of 2020, temporary personnel with more than 3 years of seniority and profiles that falsified having an indefinite contract in application of the labor reform.

Renfe’s resource to hire staff

Logirail is a state mercantile company subsidiary of the Renfe group that is owned in equal parts by the three subsidiaries that concentrate the operator’s activity: Passengers, Merchandise and Manufacturing and Maintenance. For internal purposes, they act as a provider of ground logistics services for the different businesses in the hands of Renfe s professionals, in line with their transformation plan.

Among its usual functions are the provision of services in logistics areas, dry ports, railway terminals or ports; manage ‘door-to-door’ transport by road for goods that move by train; maintenance mechanics or field management for the automotive sector. Logirail is chaired by José Luis Cachafeiro, General Director of Operations of the Renfe group and ‘number two’ of the company.

Although it emerged in 2009 to form part of the mixed companies dedicated to railway operational maintenance, it has gradually become an entity that covers the transformation needs of the Renfe group. For example, it has been in charge of providing personnel to the Digital Competence Centers, the technology centers that the operator has placed in different enclaves of empty Spain and which already have a workforce of 400 workers. Employees also provide access control or ticket sales tasks at stations, in addition to work in workshops.

Negotiate a new collective agreement

This employment consolidation plan comes after the unions called a concentration of workers in Atocha in which they demanded to improve their salaries and equalize their hourly conditions to those of the rest of the Renfe group, in order to achieve that they be granted the weekly working day of 35 hours.

Unions and company have been immersed in the negotiation of the III Logirail Collective Agreement for months, after the second, which entered into force in May, was denounced at the end of last year. Renfe has conveyed its concern about the high rates of absenteeism, something that the workers’ representatives attribute to working conditions due to shift changes or absence of days for their own business that facilitate conciliation.

Among the novelties of this agreement would be a new professional organization, the creation of a new group of Digital Management Agents or an occupational risk prevention plan. On their side, the unions claim to set a standard for promotion and internal mobility, training plans and apply the reduction in working hours to the aforementioned 35 hours. They also request that the 2.5% wage increase endorsed by the CCOO and UGT with the Government be applied in November 2022 and that covers all public sector employees.
