Germany - Waste employers’ offer angers union - November 25, 2010

The ver.di public services union has reacted angrily to the latest proposals from the BDE private waste employers’ organisation. The union had called for a 3% pay increase backdated to May 2010 but the employers have offered nothing for an eight-month period and just 1% from January 2011 on. Ver.di is also concerned about the employers’ aims to introduce a lower level pay structure which would mean some workers stuck on pay rates equivalent to those from the mid-1990s (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 October 2010).
