Unicaja Banco held today in Malaga the fifth meeting with the Legal Representation of Employees (RLT), part of the informal period (set forth in the Additional Transitional Provision Five of the Collective Labor Agreement for Savings Banks and Savings Financial Institutions) within the labour negotiation process following the merger with Liberbank.
On the one hand, with regard to staff resizing, the company has presented a proposal of measures for the termination of contracts, which would take place, preferably, via compensated leaves, for a potential group of 1,513 employment contracts (of which 508 correspond to central services and 1,005 to the network of branches), on a voluntary basis as the preferential criterion.
It has also presented a Relocation Plan to ensure support to all those persons affected by contract terminations and which improves the legal provisions.
On the other hand, with regard to geographical mobility, the company has explained the scope of the measures and compensations.
Likewise, regarding the modification of certain working conditions, the institution Management has insisted on its will to carry out a harmonization process taking as a reference the conditions existing at Unicaja Banco, and provided that it does not involve additional expenses for the bank.
The RLT has analysed the information provided at the meeting.
The parties have agreed to hold a new meeting on 27 October in Malaga.
