MADRID, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- The president of a civil servants union in Spain demanded the government make its budget cuts and get on with the economic healing.

Miguel Borra, president of the Independent Trade Union Confederation of Public Servants insisted that the government "get the cuts over with," so it could "start making the administration system work properly again."

ThinkSpain reported Thursday that Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's budget proposes to return a Christmas bonus for civil servants, but otherwise has a third consecutive year of frozen wages.

The government also proposed a 10 percent re-employment rate. That means for every 10 employees who retire, only one will be hired.
