The Ministry is toughening its tone with the business side, due to the siding if this sector with the “extreme right”, while the president of CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, and other employer representatives accuse Díaz of not practicing “social dialogue”, but rather “social monologue”.

However, the second vice president announced that next Monday she will present a new legal proposal to the social agents to do everything possible so that CEOE adhere to the pact.
