Public sector union members have until Tuesday, July 19 of this year to present their Decentralized Collective Agreements to the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF)as established in Technical Report No. 001033-2022-SERVIR-GPGSC of the National Civil Service Authority (Servir).
According to the entity, this document, prepared by the Civil Service Management Policy Department, clarifies what is mentioned in number 5.3 of article 5 Supreme Decree No. 008-2022-PCM, which approves Guidelines for the implementation of the Law No. 31188, Law on Collective Bargaining in the State Sector.
“In this way, the term that unions have to submit the collective agreement of decentralized collective bargaining or the conciliation or arbitration award, if applicable, to the MEF, is until Tuesday, July 19,” said the executive president of SERVIR, Janeyri Boyer Carrera, cites a press release.
In addition, he added “that with this, Servir also meets a requirement of the unions, especially regional and local governments, workers and municipal workers.”
Supreme Decree No. 008-2022-PCM establishes that agreements at the centralized and decentralized levels should be reached until June 30 to the aforementioned portfolio for the inclusion of its economic implications in the Public Sector Budget Law, but now with the Servir technical report they have a longer term.
In the event that economic agreements have not been reached at the centralized level, the direct treatment of matters with an economic impact at the decentralized level may be concluded until July 15.
Servir’s technical report also concludes that in order to bargain collectively at a decentralized level in economic matters and adopt agreements on them, it must be known in advance whether or not economic agreements were reached in collective bargaining at a centralized level.
Therefore, the negotiation at the decentralized level may initiate the direct treatment of economic matters not contained at the centralized level, which could conclude the direct treatment of them after knowing the agreements agreed at the centralized level, until July 15.
In the same way, the conciliation or the arbitration award may be concluded, if applicable, provided that they deal with economic matters not contained at a centralized level, until that same date.
