According to sources from the purple party, not only the ERTES agreement (whose extension is still being negotiated between the Government and social agents) declines at the end of this month. We can remember that other measures of the so-called ‘social shield’ are about to expire.
The party led by Pablo Iglesias believes that the third wave of the coronavirus it may be the hardest of allTherefore, they consider it “essential” to extend the measures that end this month.
Thus, among others, Unidas Podemos reminds that the extension of rental contracts or the allowance for termination of benefits (SACO).
The request of Podemos not only refers to the measures that are extinguished, but also propose that they recover some of the policies that were carried out in the first wave.
For example, Podemos wants to retrieve measures such as consumer loan moratorium, the mortgage moratorium or the aid to pay the rent.
According to sources from the purple formation, the PSOE has already in its hands, for several days, a document with the requests made by Podemos, but according to the latter party, they have not yet offered any response.
