A JUDGE has supported Endesa in a case to withdraw free electric rights from 26,000 pensioners.

As of June 30, electricity bill help received by tens of thousands of retired Endesa workers be cut.

Unions have rejected the ruling, and announced they will take the case to Spain’s Supreme Court, arguing an agreement dating to 1928 guaranteeing rights for all employees. Widows and retired workers received further protection at an agreement eight years later.

The bill to subsidise Endesa’s 9,000 current employees and 26,000 retired employees is thought to have cost the company €711 million.
