The Popular Party is observing the departure of the labor reform from the sidelines. And it is doing so with some ease, not only because they have decided on the direction of their vote for weeks and are completely oblivious to any negotiations with the Government, but also because the popular they consider yes Pedro Sanchez and Yolanda Diaz they end up carrying out one of their star reforms with the support of Ciudadanos, the continuity of the coalition would be seen for sentencing. “If he goes out with them, the legislature is dead”, party sources warn La Información.

those of Paul Married They are going to vote ‘no’ to a regulation that, although it does not remotely repeal the framework that Mariano Rajoy imposed in 2012, does knock down nuclear aspects of it to rebalance the balance of collective bargaining towards the union side. The leader of the PP was oblivious this Tuesday to a “burial” in which he assures that no one has given him a candle and called the open negotiation between the Government and the different parliamentary groups an “auction” to get the necessary support tied up when they are barely missing hours for the vote in the Congress of Deputies.

This Tuesday, just 48 hours before the vote, several relevant movements took place. More Country and Compromises announced that they would vote in favor of the labor reform, after having reached an agreement with the Ministry of Labor to incorporate some issues related to precariousness and mental health to Yolanda Díaz’s legislative agenda. The Government also tied up the support of Teruel Exists, the Cantabrian Regionalist Party, Nueva Canarias and Canarian Coalition. Your votes, added to those of citizens, would give 170 yeses to the Government (with PSOE and UP).

But that figure remains below the 173 noes that would bring together the PP, Vox, ERC, PNV, EH Bildu, Junts, CUP, BNG, Foro Asturias and the escaped deputy from Cs, Pablo Cambronero, whom Moncloa is trying to attract to the yes in extremis bloc. However, the position of the PDeCAT, which could be favorable, as well as the two votes of UPN, whose formation has slipped that “all the scenarios are open”, although they traditionally position themselves next to the PP.

Indeed, all scenarios are open and the future of the labor reform will be decided at the last moment. Vice President Díaz thanked the minority groups for their support this Tuesday, but insisted that the Government is squeezing the negotiations with the investiture partners to try to convince them to vote in favor of the labor reform, something that cannot be ruled out until the last minute. The Minister of Labor, hardened in the arduous negotiations with the bosses and the unions, is used to reaching agreements on the horn, and on this occasion it could also be the case, according to slips from her environment.

Diaz raises the pressure

To increase the pressure on the partners, in a clear message to the ERC, PNV and Bildu, but without quoting them directly, Díaz warned this Tuesday upon his arrival at the Senate that those who vote no on this labor reform, which has been in force since January 1, will be supporting the labor relations framework designed by the PP and they will cause workers to “wake up on Friday with fewer labor rights than they had the day before.” And he took the opportunity to advance good data on indefinite contracts in the month of January. With the usual discretion, however, he avoided ruling on the possibility of adding the investiture partners to an agreement in extremis.

The Government continues contacts with the groups, with some peace of mind because it has the Citizens route paved in the face of the blockade of its usual partners, who demand changes in the norm agreed with the social agents. In the PP they feel comfortable with this situation, because they consider that if the Executive finally ends up carrying out this labor counter-reform with the support of those of Ines Arrimadas, “the legislature can be terminated, in the absence of putting a date on it.” The popular They see electoral optimism that the labor reform will break the investiture bloc, because that would complicate government stability in the remainder of the legislature and, sooner or later, “the coalition will end up breaking up,” they say.
