Germany - Earlier wage hike for large share of metal workers - January 20, 2011

The IG Metall union has announced that almost half of its members will receive a wage hike two months earlier than originally scheduled, signaling a more aggressive approach to negotiations with employers. Union chairman Berthold Huber said an agreed 2.7% wage increase will be accelerated by two months for more than 40% of its members. The wage hike will start as from February instead of April, Huber said at a press conference at IG Metall's Frankfurt headquarters.
