This afternoon, the Government resumes negotiations with the social partners for the last phase of the pension reform, which will include a gradual increase in maximum Social Security contributions over the next three decades.
The Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration has called the trade unions UGT and CCOO, and the employers’ associations CEOE and Cepyme, to the social dialogue table at 18.30, after the last formal meeting on 12 September.
In recent weeks, the social partners have complained about the lack of negotiation regarding the aspects that are still pending to complete the pension reform that the government has committed to Brussels for this year.
Among the pending issues are the adaptation of the calculation period to cover contribution gaps and the increase in the bases and maximum pensions.
The minister, José Luis Escrivá, is confident that he will be able to finalise these issues before the end of the year, in addition to the review of the partial and active retirement modalities.
