One day after the unions carried out the first strike in the banking sector at BBVA in 30 years, which led the entity to not open 42% of its branches. The new offer also comes one day before the official negotiation period ends, the bank chaired by Carlos Torres has proposed a new cut in the number of layoffs. In this way, and according to this last proposal, the number of departures would be reduced to 2,935 affected, compared to the 3,798 that it initially proposed.
In this way, the cut in outputs on the initial number is 863, 22.72% less than at the beginning of the negotiations. Of the departures proposed today, 2,177 would be carried out in the branch network, while those affected in the central services add up to 758.
The bank has also decided to reduce the number of offices to close by 50, which causes a reduction in the number of affected in the group of office managers and urban center managers by 50.
The unions value this movement “positively”, according to a statement from the UGT and CC OO. In fact, the latter union, the majority in the bank, assures that “for our part, we will analyze whether the proposed reductions are sufficient.”
