CCOO has asked Social Security this Thursday that the working life report correctly include the periods contributed part-time by workers.

The Unai Sordo union denounces in a statement that these reports continue to be made within the parameters of legislation “already outdated regarding part-time jobs.”

Thus, the periods of part-time contributions appear “converted” into their equivalent to full-time contributions, giving rise, according to the union, to an “underestimation” of the contribution period.

For this reason, CCOO insists that Social Security update the information, expressly including the data on registration periods that in current legislation are established as a fundamental reference to determine the benefits of people with a part-time contract.

For the union, the legislation “has taken too long to incorporate equitable treatment to the phenomenon of part-time employment”, so that people who contributed part-time, mostly women, have had for “a long time a double penalty: that derived from lower salaries and contribution bases and the only partial consideration of the periods worked.

The rulings of the Court of Justice of the European Union (TEU) and the Constitutional Court (TC) of November 22, 2012 and March 14, 2013, respectively, made possible a social dialogue agreement with the Government by which, Through Royal Decree-Law 11/2023, the “global partiality coefficient” was created, which improved the previous situation, although still “incompletely”, according to CCOO.

Two new rulings from the TUE and the TC issued in 2019 established that when the worker has held part-time jobs, when determining the percentage applicable to the regulatory base of the retirement pension, the periods in which they were employed must be taken into consideration. He has remained on duty with a part-time contract, regardless of the length of the day.

In this way, the social protection of part-time contracts and those provided full-time would be fully equated for the purposes of the retirement amount, referenced to the perceptions received in each case.

CCOO points out that the TC doctrine in both 2013 and 2019 has been applied by Social Security since its enactment, but it was not until the 2023 pension reform that the text of the General Law of the Social Security was updated. Social Security.
