THE two main trade unions (UGT and CC.OO) will be staging demos in Palma tomorrow, to demand greater job security and an economic and social development plan with the Balearic Government.

The trade unions want to carry out a study entitled “what is happening to the Balearic economy?”, in which they want to refer to the change in tourism model as well as the disappearance of shoe, wood and costume jewellery businesses.

During a press conference the secretary generals from the two trade unions, Lorenzo Bravo and Jose Benedicto, said that after two years of legislation from the Jaume Matas government, “nothing has changed” in terms of economics. “They have dedicated themselves more to building new roads as well as opposing the central government”, the two secretary generals complained.
In this way the current economic model “will take us to a dead end, if we don't do something about it”, said Bravo.
Therefore the trade unions are proposing a way to resolve the situation, by coming up with an economical and social development pact “which will channel and study what is happening to the Balearic economy. We have structural problems, as much economic as touristic and industrial, and the Government does not want to analyse them”.
