Working without pay

The five parties that formed the council in Torrevieja (Los Verdes, PSPV-PSOE, APTCe, Sueña Torrevieja and IU) proposed that full time councillors should receive 3,200 euros per month, 3,000 for the other members of the group and 2,900 euros per month for the opposition parties.

The PP and Cuidanos have rejected the proposal saying that the total amounts to 632,800 euros. They claim that their proposal shaves 46,270 euros from the bill for salaries.

The net outcome is that, as things stand, none of the councillors will receive remuneration for their work. Maybe that was not such a clever move on the part of the two opposition parties.
