Austria - Collective agreement at railway company - June 22, 2011

After tough negotations in six bargaining rounds, the negotiating team of the VIDA services union has reached agreement with the board of the national railway company, ÖBB, for a collective agreement covering 1 July 2011 – 3o June 2012. It includes a basic pay rise of 2.4% for both white and blue collar workers, which equals the inflation rate of the last 12 months. As VIDA vice president Wilhelm Haberzettl explained, the detailed wage figures show a slight nominal improvement for the lower paid and a zero outcome fo the better paid, the latter according to Haberzettl justified by the recent dramatic economic situation of the company.
