He SIMA FSP, Public Sector Foundation, has processed 566 procedures during the past year, which have affected 358,523 companies. This figure has meant the maximum historical records processed by the Foundation.
These figures represent an increase of 30.4% in the number of procedures managed and 89.8% in relation to the number of women workers affected by them.
It is also important to note that the percentage of agreement has been 32.1%.
The SIMA-FSP has as its primary purpose the autonomous solution of collective labor disputes of a higher scope than that of an Autonomous Community, through mediation and arbitration procedures. The SIMA-FSP also provides spaces for dialogue and negotiation to employers and workers or their respective representative organizations, developing as many actions as necessary for the dissemination of the culture of negotiated conflict resolution.
This important work, derived from the necessary social dialogue prevailing in our labor relations model, therefore implies the highest level of development of collective autonomy. This collective autonomy materializes, through the Agreement on Autonomous Work Conflict Resolution (ASAC V), the component capacity of the parties, that is, the possibility of managing and resolving labor disputes by the agents directly involved.
This Foundation has more than 20 years of experience, since it originated in the Agreement on Out of Court Dispute Settlement (ASEC), signed on January 25, 1996 by CEOE, CEPYME, CCOO and UGT and published in the BOE of February 8, 1996. Its maintenance has been the result of its renegotiation during the following years until reaching the current ASAC V.
The Fundación SIMA-FSP has been involved in more than 6,000 procedures since its launch in 1998.
In 2018 the parties have opted for mediation at 99.8%, having promoted a single arbitration.
The type of conflict that has been used to a greater extent is that of interpretation and application of the norm, agreement or collective agreement, with 81.6% of the instants (462 files). The mediations prior to the formal strike call are followed, which, with 79 files, represent 13.9% of the total.
The majority of the files, 33.2%, dealt with salary issues, mainly due to matters related to the remuneration related to the worker, followed by that of working time (19.6%).
