Anged, Asucova and Confecomer ask to return to the pact in holidays and areas of tourist influx. They suggest that the declaration of ZGAT is not only of the municipalities.
The Department of Economa that directsRafael ClimentIt has already started badly with the processing of the Sustainable Trade Law, which has angered a large part of the sector because it is considered to have been done without wanting to seek consensus and bypassing the demands of the sector. From ah, themalaise of the main employers of commerceIt has already been written down in its various claims to the standard.
In them, the employer of the Anged large trade, the association of Asucova supermarkets and the employer of the small trade Confecomer – all integrated in the CEV – directly accuse the Ministry of skipping even in some cases the Lonja Agreement, the famous -by how complicated it was to reach it from business hours.
It is what happens with the cSundays and holidaysenabled for commercial opening. Both Anged and Asucova and Confecomer claim to include in the law, and not in a subsequent regulation, the criteria for the authorization of a holiday when there is a coincidence of two or more continuous holidays. The commerce sector remembers that it was agreed in the Agreement of the Lonja and, nevertheless, it was not later collected in the law 21/2017, of December 28, of accompaniment of the budgets. It is necessary to bet on a normative and consensual framework, which endows the legal security sector, with objective and clear criteria, summarizes Asucova in its allegations.
There are also basic agreements on areas of high tourist influx (ZGAT) that the sector has not been included in the draft law. It is again demanded that a post-law regulation is not expected to make it clear in the norm what are the periods, requirements and the procedure to follow for the declaration of a ZGAT.
Again, legal security is appealed, because according to Anged, regulatory development leaves the declaration regime in the hands of administrative discretion, which may present a low or no level of integration with the basic legislation of the State and have as its purpose considerably restrict the regime of full freedom of business hours.
In this line, Asucova’s claims insist that it is very important that these requirements and procedures are embodied in the law, as they were before they were eliminated, for a matter of legal security, in the face of any attempt to modify them without the due guarantees of legal participation, of the sector and of the parts, and that we return to have as much diversity of zones of great tourist affluence as municipalities.
Confecomer recalls that this issue was agreed upon by the sector, but was not included in the Lonja Agreement and was surprisingly introduced in the text of Law 21/2017, of December 28, accompanying budgets.
On the other hand, most of the commerce sector wantsThe declaration or repeal of a ZGAT may be initiated at the request of one of the business organizationsmost representative of the sector, without prejudice to the power of each municipality. As Asucova explains, leaving in the hands of each city council the ‘exclusive’ possibility of initiating said process, could violate the principle of freedom of enterprise within the framework of the economy and market unit.
In the opinion of the supermarket association, this would mean alimitation to free exerciseof a commercial activity in those municipalities that, despite being true areas of great tourist influx, for discretionary reasons, the respective municipalities decide not to request such declaration from the Department.
The validity of the ZGAT is another of the issues facing the sector with the Ministry. Anged, Asucova and Confecomer claim that their default expiration be eliminated at four years as provided by law. As Asucova summarizes, the review of all the ZGATs every four years implies an administrative bureaucracy that both the local and autonomous administration should advocate for suppressing, since the right of revocation must be open at any time that it can be demonstrated that the reasons they urged Your statement has disappeared.
According to the criteria of
