The president of the CEOE accompanies the president of the Croem employers’ association in its 44th assembly
“Equalizing salaries to inflation would imply more unemployment and bankruptcies.” The president of the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, reaffirmed in Murcia his disagreement with the current proposal for an income agreement proposed by the unions, since he is convinced that it would end up being negative for the workers themselves.
«The unions demand that inflation be equated to wages. And there is something evident: companies cannot transfer this inflation to their sales. By equating inflation to salaries, we would achieve more unemployment and bankruptcies; We cannot admit that salaries go with inflation », said Garamendi before accompanying and supporting the Murcian businessmen with his presence at the general assembly of the Croem Murcian employers’ association, which is being held this Friday in the Promenade halls.
The president of the Spanish employers’ association, who foresees that interest rates will rise in the coming months but trusts in the containment of inflation, did not want to assess in depth the possibility of applying a four-day working day, which he considers an electoral proposal. Garamendi reiterated that “when you talk seriously about the issues they have a thousand nuances”, and that, “curiously, when they are talked about, it is always those of the same group who talk about them and meet among themselves.” “We are in permanent elections and we are in politics, and we do not do politics, we build companies,” said the leader of the CEOE, who, however, assured that when this issue “comes to the table” of negotiation “we will talk about it” because “it depends on the sector and the company”.
The president of CEPYME, Gerardo Cuerva, also participated in the meeting of the regional productive fabric with the public institutions and social groups with which they maintain ties; the president of ATA, Lorenzo Amor; from CEV (Valencian employer), Salvador Navarro; and the president of ASEMPAL, the Almería business association, José Cano, among others. The president of the Community, Fernando López Miras, will close the day, which began with the presentation of the demands and expectations of the president of Croem, José María Albarracín, who trusts that the meeting will end with the announcement of the forthcoming approval of the third administrative simplification law.
Albarracín defended the businessmen’s commitment to the Mar Menor, insisting that “we are here to help; we are not the problem but a large part of the solution.” The president of the Murcian businessmen, who will present his action plan for next year and the balance of the current year during the 44th employers’ association, also called for greater fiscal relaxation in a model that he called “Murciano-Madrilenian taxes” .
Albarracín, who insisted on denouncing the delay in priority infrastructures for the Region and demanding the National Hydrological Plan, lamented «the lack of understanding between administrations; It is unacceptable and unbearable that the Government of Spain does not attend to the requests of the president of the regional government. Let’s hope it reverses the situation when it comes to the general interest.”
