Today is an important day in the 7th Term Collective Agreement process. Today is the 14th and the offer is expected today. As of 15.00, the confederations and other components of the table will come together at the table. Therefore, today we are waiting for the first proposal to meet the expectations of public officials.
While we were presenting our offers, we presented them in the form of quarterly offers for the year 2024 for the first year. We have seen how important this is and how much it has received, as a result of the survey we conducted with 50 thousand public servants. 90 percent see this as an extremely important proposition.
