Last Wednesday, June 29, COFE and the Executive were preparing to sign a salary agreement, which established a recovery of the lost salary for most of the state employees, and in turn, provided for growth for those officials who earned less, however, the agreement was blocked due to the fact that the government included in the Rendering of Accounts a series of articles that were not consulted with the union organization.
These articles referred to working conditions and the administrative career.
“These articles had not been negotiated with COFE, so signing the agreement was like signing a blank check,” José Lorenzo López, COFE Secretary General, said at the time.
However, this Thursday the Executive Power informed the officials that such items were not going to be included in the Rendering of Accounts, for which they were in a position to sign the collective agreement that covers until December 31, 2025
“It is an agreement that, although it is not 100% of what we demanded, is quite close to the objective that COFE had planned and that is why the assembly decided to endorse the signing of the agreement with the Executive,” López said, according to what the PIT reported. -CNT.
In any case, there are still pending claims, such as: “the regularization of precarious State contracts, the entry of personnel, the correction of hourly inequities and the restructuring decree that was not collectively negotiated.”
The agreement points to the most submerged salaries of the state workers, which are around 30,000 nominal pesos, for whom there will be a salary increase. For those in the middle in terms of income, there is going to be a 6% salary recovery and the highest paid officials will not reach a 6% recovery, but they will adjust for a little below that percentage.
