CCOO union obtains a significant representation in key sectors of regional trade

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Applications of CCOO in the important and strategic regional trade sector are performing strongly, especially in companies where there was no union representation so far.

Such is the case of companies in the sector as representative of trade as Bershka, Zara SPRINGFIELD which until recently had no union representation in the Region of Murcia.

In Springfield, CCOO has won 5 of the 9 union delegates at stake and Bershka, 4 9.

The dispersion of these workplaces, which belong to multinational companies important to the economy of this country, next to the small number of staff made it very difficult to conduct union elections.

The union elections as the start of union representation in the workplace, opening the way towards improving the working conditions of employees and employees in commerce.

One area where the days are very long and very short pay.

With the results obtained in these processes, CCOO grows in representation in the trade sector and has the full confidence that these results will be reflected in the negotiations of the Collective Agreement for Trade in the Region of Murcia, which on today are paralyzed .

[Agricultural cooperatives reject the agreement of the European Commission's aid crisis' E.

coli] | FECOAM believes that he has returned to give back to the sector |

July 29.

Anger, distress and outrage.

So the answer can be summed up agricultural cooperatives to the 71 million Spanish producers receive as compensation for the crisis' E.

coli, after the management committee held yesterday the European Commission in Brussels.

The Federation of Unions in the Region of Murcia (FECOAM) held this morning at its headquarters a press conference to evaluate the decisions of the European Union.

The event was attended by the president of the organization, Santiago Martinez Gabaldon, and the president of Agri-food Cooperatives of Spain, Ferdinand Marcos.

Martinez Gabaldon has indicated that the Commission raised no extraordinary measures to recover the market of summer fruit, although it is completely collapsed, especially in peach, nectarine, melon and watermelon.

This product has undergone an unprecedented price cuts by the sharp fall in consumption since the outbreak of the crisis by infection with the 'E.


European producer sector and the governments of Spain, France and Italy urged an urgent letter to the European Commission to raise extraordinary measures to withdraw from the market so that he could recover.

The request was to be included in aid to fruit and vegetable every summer since the crisis began on 26 May onwards.

FECOAM President recalled that the commodity prices have dropped up to 50% compared to the average of recent years, when "we are still mid-summer campaign and the situation could get worse."

However, it has been taken into account neither the industry nor the Member States concerned and the Commission is limited to maintain aid for the five products already confirmed, cucumber, tomato, lettuce, zucchini and peppers, and only included peach and nectarine, but as of July 19, "so that the region will not benefit at all because by that date, the campaign of these products is about to end," he said.

FECOAM believes that these measures are woefully inadequate to address the disastrous situation of the fruit market.

Nor offset market losses that are suffered by the companies by the fall in consumption in the EU, especially hard for Organization of Fruit and Vegetables (OPFH), who had to work with prices well below costs.

Gabaldon Martinez pointed out that the 71 million who receive Spain, 50 will be in Andalusia, so it helps to Murcia barely reach three million, although the estimate of losses the past two months over 200 million.

Mark, for his part, stressed the importance of horticulture and food within the Spanish economy and pointed out that the situation in which it is immersed is due to a problem completely alien to them.

"The crisis is due to our mismanagement or product quality, but the accusations of a health minister in Hamburg, which has totally collapsed," he said.

The president of Agri-food Cooperatives has appealed to political parties, peasant organizations and companies make a great deal of state.

"We must work together to restore consumer confidence and the price of the products," he noted.

FECOAM stresses that this is the second time that the Commission gives back to the sector, posing no decisive measures of market management, not actual losses offset by lower prices or offering at least a promotion campaign funded entirely by the EU do to restore consumer confidence in the European fruit and vegetables.
