A percentage or a donation, the agreement between bands and brotherhoods of Córdoba

Negotiations, goodwill, but also compliance and generosity. The words come out these days in the conversations between the gangs and the brotherhoods to resolve the contracts of this year 2A020, in which the processions have been suspended. When it is done by rain the case is clear: one hundred percent is paid, but this year has been different due to the complete suspension of the processions due to the coronavirus. Juan Carlos Rodríguez Castillo is the treasurer and former president of the Tubamirum band from Cañete de las Torres, which plays five days during Holy Week in Córdoba.

In his case, the contracts do not mention any specific reason for suspension, but there is also the principle "Acta sunt servanda", that is, extraordinary events. His band is one of those that has reached an agreement that others have made, although he still needs to negotiate with some brotherhoods. The aim is to collect the entire contract, but then make a donation for a certain amount to the brotherhood.

It is the same thing that the musical group of Cristo de Gracia has done, which is in negotiations with several brotherhoods. For the moment they have already solved the one that united them with the pro-brotherhood of Goodness. The musical formation entered a percentage of the contract, while the rest was donated on behalf of the brotherhood and the band to the Food Bank. Its director, Alberto Fernández, told ABC that «we are going to make it very easy for the brotherhoods; We are trying to reach an agreement with all and that is beneficial for both parties. " It is what is sought in a year in which neither the brotherhoods could leave nor the bands were ready to form.

«Wait for everything to happen»
On the other hand, the Coronation gang decided to paralyze these negotiations until the confinement and the Coronavirus crisis are over. Antonio García, spokesman for the band, acknowledged that "that is an issue that is stopped now, we believe that the most sensible thing is to wait for everything to happen and to meet quietly."

Yes, the brotherhoods that had a contract with the Health band are already reaching an agreement. Alberto Fernández, deputy director of training and in charge of contract management stressed that “we are not having any problem reaching agreements with the brotherhoods. Some of them are also being very generous and are not giving even a little more because they know that we are working all year and we have a lot of expenses ».

Expenses are one of the keys to the problem. Both the brotherhoods and the gangs themselves have to face them. The manager of the María Santísima de la Esperanza music band, Alfonso Lozano, believes that it is ideal to reach an agreement in which the brotherhood pays the payment of an amount, since the band “has done the work until March”. That is to say, the tests and preparation of the new marches. In his case, the training, with five afternoons in Holy Week in Córdoba, still has the capacity to withstand a few months financially, but it has a series of expenses, "such as the arrangement of instruments", which are financed by what the brotherhoods. In the coming weeks they will meet to seek agreements.

The Santa Faz has already announced that it will not return the amount of the site ballots to its brothers and also wants to agree with its three bands. In the case of the Linares Passion, one of the most prestigious in Andalusia. The brotherhood understands that there are many annual expenses for the gangs, so they will not have problems reaching an agreement that, yes, will be "beneficial for both parties."
