SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Feb. 9. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The new collective agreement of the Insular Public Company Sinpromi has been approved by the Tenerife Cabildo after nearly 10 years of negotiations.
Águeda Fumero, the Minister of Social Action, has commended “the dedication and cooperation of both businesses and employees in reaching this landmark agreement, which has given rise to a document that offers significant enhancements and legal assurance to the organisation.”
This entire process has been overseen and coordinated by the Cabildo, through the Administrative Service of Legal Regime, Trade Union Relations and Public Sector of the insular institution.
The signing of the agreement marks the conclusion of an intense working process that has surmounted challenging periods, as detailed by the Cabildo in a release.
The new agreement incorporates improvements, centred on the adaptation and modernisation of a range of remuneration concepts, as well as social and organisational enhancements, aimed at enhancing work quality, improving work-life balance, and providing stability.
According to the councillor, “the culmination of this negotiation process represents a pivotal achievement in the goals set for this term, laying down the regulatory foundations for the company’s labour relations and enabling us to appropriately direct efforts towards better fulfillment of Sinpromi’s social mission.”
In this regard, Fumero believes that “this agreement will have an impact on Sinpromi’s social performance, as the entity, which has just celebrated its 30th anniversary, consolidates itself as a body that has contributed to transforming Tenerife’s society through the promotion and advocacy of values that ensure equal opportunities for all individuals.”
José Antonio Fariña, the president of the works committee and workers’ representative, affirmed that “the approved agreement entails significant improvements and provides greater legal certainty,” adding that “the initiation of this agreement implies equalising the working conditions of Sinpromi employees with the rest of the island public sector, and offers an opportunity to continue improving working conditions and public service provision, facilitating the development of plans for professional reclassification, equality, and organisational structure adaptation.”
