The ETUC and its Spanish members CCOO and UGT, communicate to Vice-President Dombroviskis their deep concerns regarding the interference of services of the European Commission in the Spanish Government’s work on the Spanish National Plan for Recovery and Resilience.
The responsibility for designing and implementing NRRP belongs to national governments in cooperation with economic and social players. Social partners are better placed to establish content and timing of reforms in the best interests of Spanish workers and businesses and Spain as a whole. The above mentioned interference puts at risk comprehensive reforms that would provide policy response to challenges related to the Spanish labour market and in particular temporary employment and youth unemployment. They also resulted in an inacceptable interference in national social dialogue and autonomy of social partners.
