Euskaraz irakurri: Ehungintzako merkataritzaren greba egun betean, jumping-kate handiek merkealdia hasi dute
The Bizkaia textile trade strike coincided this Tuesday with the start of the sales of several large chains of shops. Today they have celebrated a new day in favor of a decent agreement, and the unions have assured that the break has had a wide following in Bizkaia, but also in Gipuzkoa, where some businesses have joined the call.
In addition to Bizkaia, the ELA and LAB unions had also summoned the Gipuzkoa textile trade workers for today. Thus, demonstrations have been held at noon in both Bilbao and San Sebastian, and tomorrow they will carry out another new day.
In a note, ELA has urged the Cecobi and Bizkaiadendak employers to show “seriousness and responsibility” in the negotiation of the agreement and to stop “blocking it with the proposal of regressive elements such as the elimination of the seniority bonus or the Saturday payroll in the evening in summer”.
After acknowledging that in the meeting that the negotiating table held yesterday, the employers withdrew some measures that had the union’s rejection, ELA considers that “not enough progress was made” and for this reason it has maintained the strike call for today and tomorrow.
And meanwhile, many big marches have started their summer sales. Although the official day is July 1, big brands like Zara, Mango or El Corte Inglés have come a little ahead of time and are already offering discounts today.
