Trade Unions (COMFIA-CCOO & FeS-UGT) have reached a preliminary agreement with employer's organization to sign the IV contact center agreement. The IV collective agreement may be signed at Christmas.
This new collective agreement will help us fight for the professional career and promotion, something that did not exist in Telemarketing. An independent consultant, chosen by the owners organization and the trade unions, will re-define the profesional careers and training. Two new categories will be recognised: trainer and quality agent with the same salary of the team leader.
This collective agreement will let us increase our purchasing power. It will increase our payment over inflation: advanced in the first 10 days of January , 3% on account of the collective agreement with the 2007 arrears.
It also includes important improvements in the equality and family conciliation field: the mother will choose the possibility of accumulating de lactation hours in 15 days holidays.
FeS-UGT & Comfía-CC.OO. think it is important to value highly the preliminary agreement according to the economical context of this sector but also because it has not envolved any economical cost or modification of the conditions we have already achieved.
These are the most important aspectos of this new collective agreement:
