Austria - Health and social care workers get 2% increase - January 24, 2011

After difficult negotiations the VIDA and GPA-DJP trade unions have agreed a 2% pay increase for the 80,000 workers in the private health and social care sector. The agreement runs for 12 months from February 2011. The unions argue that they have secured a small real pay increase as well as improvements in two areas: leave to look after seriously ill relatives and past service entitlement. The new rules on past service will benefit workers who change employers within the sector as it will mean their past service will have to be taken into account in setting their pay level (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 December 2010).
