As reported by the Secretary General of Industry of CC. OO Aragón, Ana Sánchez, a total of 90 workers said yes to the agreement agreement while 50 said no. The agreement reached also includes maintaining the conditions of veteran workers through a supplement, which is conditioned by 10% to the evolution of productivity although 90% is fixed. The double salary scale is included in this new framework of working conditions but with the clause that in six years the new workers who join can reach the same conditions as the current 100%.
