Since last Thursday, CEOE, Cepyme and the unions majority claimed a big crash plan, that today has arrived.

CEOE and Cepyme welcome the mobilization of 117,000 million euros public, which will reach 200,000 million with private support (20% of GDP). It will mean a financial injection via credits, endorsements and others formulas so that large companies, SMEs and the self-employed can save the losses that will be produced these days by the coronavirus crisis. They will also serve to pay the unemployment of people who these days temporarily become unemployed. But, for example, Lorenzo Amor, president of the employers’ association of the self-employed ( ATA) considers that measures are lacking for this group. Through his tweet, he has defended that “we are not going to pay the self-employed fee while we are in our confined houses.” This group claims not to pay social security while they are out of work.

Another issue that social agents have been asking for days is a new regulation for temporary employment regulation files (ERTEs), since many industrial companies, especially in the automotive sector, have had to stop these days. From Seat and Nissan in Catalunya, up to Ford in Valencia, Renault in Valladolid, Volskwagen in Pamplona or Mercedes in Vitoria. As well as large chains related to hotels, restaurants, airlines or hotel chains, which have chosen to close their establishments.
