Spain – Agett looks for change

04 January 2012

The Association of Large Temporary Employment Agencies (Agett) warned in a press release on Tuesday that the Spanish labour market will continue to deteriorate in the first months of 2012. To combat this, Agett wants the Government to take steps in order to liberalise the market.

The increase in those registered with the Public Employment Service to 322,286 (+7.86%) and the loss of 355,060 jobs in the past year show that something is dramatically wrong with the current labour laws, according to the association.

It believes that extensive action needs to reverse the “enormous duality of our labour market", split between temporary and permanent work. This increased professional management of temporary work will ensure an "element of maximum control and maximum guarantee" for workers, as evidenced by the "excellent results" with those that operate in the rest of Europe.

Finally, Agett would like to see the government “legislate” for change rather than reach consensus decisions with social partners, focusing on the reform of collective bargaining, contract formulas and active employment policies to make them the "real heart" of job creation.
