The second vice president of the Government, Yolanda Díaz, is not only working on the configuration of her party, but on a decree that can have an electoral effect on the youngest segment of the population.

The Ministry of Labor has reached an agreement in principle with the unions to regulate the so-called Statute of the Scholar and implement it before the elections of July 23, as EL MUNDO has learned from sources familiar with the negotiation.

The CEOE employer has decided to be left out of this pact, although it has been informed. This statute regulates the working conditions of trainees and aims to prevent labor fraud with this group, as the Ministry has repeatedly stated.

The employers chaired by Antonio Garamendi have been rejecting in recent months the drafts promoted by the Secretary of State for Labor, Joaquín Pérez Rey, but, in addition, considers that it is not time so few weeks before the elections to reach agreements on regulations of this nature. However, Diaz and the leaders of CCOO; Unai Sordo, and UGT; Pepe Álvarez, have decided to go ahead and agree on the Statute of the Fellow.
Pérez Rey has reached a pact with a severe sanctioning regime so that fines in case of "very serious infractions" can reach 225,018 euros. "In its minimum degree will be fines of 7,501 to 30,000 euros; in its average grade from 30,001 to 120,005 euros; and in its maximum degree of 120,006 euros to 225,018 euros", according to the agreement reached, pending formalization.

To bring positions closer, it has also been agreed that those who enter into "extracurricular practices developed during the official studies of degree, university master's degree or, where appropriate, doctorate, that do not exceed 15% of the hours in which the ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer System) of the degree are concretized" can benefit from the statute.

Also those who participate in "practices developed during studies linked to university-specific degrees, when the total sum of curricular and extracurricular practices does not exceed 25% of the ECTS credits of the corresponding degree". There is an exception in this case: "Own degrees that have a minimum duration of 60 ECTS credits will have the possibility of establishing internships for a period of 3 months".

The dissolution in the Cortes obliges to process it as a decree and transfer to the Permanent Parliamentary Deputation.
