The agreement also includes some improvements in the area of collective bargaining. For instance, collective agreements will be extended until they are replaced by new ones. On the sectoral level, the company agreement may regulate the choice between payment or compensation of overtime; the schedule and distribution of working time; the adaptation of professional classification and family reconciliation measures. Furthermore, there is now a prevalence of the sectoral agreement in terms of wages, remuneration and working hours. Another positive point is that the sector agreement for the activity carried out is also valid for contracts and subcontracts, which protects the workers in subcontracting chains.
After the tripartite agreement, the labour reform will now undergo parliamentary scrutiny for which the minority government of Pedro Sanchez (PSOE) is seeking votes.
