At the meeting of the negotiating table on Wednesday, the company has increased in its proposal the number of people who meet the age and seniority requirements of the company from 3,261 to 4,532 after including all the company’s addresses in Spain.
In this way, Telefónica has considered the arguments provided by the workers’ representatives to include all addresses, although with some adjustment, in the sense that it proposes that the prioritization of professional profiles that will have a labor surplus must be respected and those who are protected must be protected. They are critical to your business plans, according to sources.

“Clearly insufficient,” says UGT
For UGT, the company’s new proposal continues “to be clearly insufficient”, and they demand a new approach where universality is respected to the maximum and with a homogeneous income plan for all age groups.

The negotiation affects the employees of Telefónica de España, Telefónica Móviles and Telefónica Soluciones, which total around 18,000 workers.
