SPAIN: ONE MILLION WORKERS TO LOSE COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT PROTECTION [20 September 2013]
Spain’s trade unions estimate that around one million workers may soon lose the protection of collective agreements. Legislation in 2012 removed a labour law provision that guaranteed the indefinite validity of a collective agreement, even after its official expiry date, if an employer refused to sign a new agreement. The maximum period for which an agreement can remain in force has now been fixed at 12 months after expiry. Many have not been renewed and are due to expire.
