THE unions turned down Denia town hall’s proposed pay rises for municipal employees.
When union officials sat down at the negotiating only SEP, one of the four unions representing the 510 workers, voted in favour of the increases that would have been received as specific supplements.
The Fesep EMAD, UGT and CCOO unions rejected the proposed rises, which they considered would have been unevenly distributed.
The town hall negotiators knew beforehand that Fesep EMAD would turn down the offer after a previous survey amongst members revealed that they did not want the union to accept.
Eighty-three per cent felt that the proposal did not value their posts “objectively and fairly” while 75 per cent considered that the rise was neither balanced nor justified.
The town hall must now decide whether to continue negotiating or, on the contrary, put the proposal before the council at the next plenary session, municipal sources revealed.
