IMSS and SNTSS agree on a global wage increase of 7.8%

The Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) and the National Union of Social Security Workers (SNTSS) signed an agreement for a comprehensive review of the collective contract (CCT) for the 2023–2025 biennium, which represents a global increase of 7.8 percent, benefiting around 440 thousand workers.

The agreement contains an increase of 4 percent in all categories of the salary table and 3.8 percent in the concept of Assistance for the Payment of House Rent, provided in paragraph b) of Clause 63 Bis of the CCT, which is 72.15 percent in tabular salary.

Zoé Robledo, director of IMSS, pointed out that the agreement “is the result of intense work” and maintained that the institute is stronger and safer because “the financial data, the growth of the rights, and the workers are like this.”

With the participation of 67 percent of the total voter register, the agreement was endorsed by 93 percent of the workers (over 273 thousand). It will be valid from October 16 to October 15, 2025.

The negotiation also includes the modification of 33 ordinary clauses, including 77 Bis, which covers the recognition of retired and pensioned personnel, where the institute will deliver 8 million 100 thousand pesos of SNTSS for the organization of tributes.

In the case of Clauses 78 and 78 Bis, 24 million and 300 thousand pesos will be given to each, which is equivalent to organizing festivals for the recognition of nursing and medical personnel, respectively.

The agreement was signed by the director of IMSS and the general secretary of SNTSS, Arturo Olivares Cerda, in the session room of the Institute’s Technical Council, as well as the Secretary of Labor, Marath Bolaños, and the director of the Federal Labor Center, Alfredo Dominguez.
