Officials from the Basque Country and Navarra may have higher salary increases to those of public workers in other regions. This is contemplated in the agreement that PSOE and PNV have signed for the investiture of Pedro Sánchez. And not only that, but these territories may also have more numerous public employment offers, as has been announced. Expansion.
“In compliance with the first additional provision of the Constitution and, with respect to the financial autonomy exercised by the institutions of the provincial territories, the rates of replacement of the offer may be agreed upon within the Joint Concert and Agreement Commissions. of public employment of new entry to the sectors, functions and professional categories that are considered absolutely priority, and the global maximums to the increase in the remuneration mass of public employees“.
This, the text continues, will always be done “always guaranteeing balance and the corresponding path of budgetary stability in each budgetary year. The respective Basque and Navarrese legislatures will transfer said agreement to their corresponding public employment regulations.”
For these actions to be possible, not only the desire of the Basque Country and Navarra will be necessary but also the agreement with the Government since, as noted in the text, it must be agreed upon in the commissions with Navarrese and Basques. Is that the central executive would have to accept that additional salary increase or an expansion in the offer of public employment.
But in any case, this possibility represents a clear comparative grievance and a new privilege for these territories, which already have much higher financing than the rest of the communities thanks to the Basque economic convert and the Navarrese agreement. In the signed agreement, the transfer of Social Security to the Basque Country is also agreed within a maximum period of two years.
