Estonia - Wages of miners to increase - April 27, 2011

On 25 April the oil shale production company Eesti Energia Kaevandused and the Association of Oil Shale Producers’ Trade Unions signed a new collective agreement which foresees a 5 to 11% increase in miners’ wages. Miners who have worked in the company for three to four years without a raise will receive the 11% increase, and although some benefits were excluded from the new agreement, the pay of each miner will rise by at least 5%.
