Germany - Union calls for regions to implement pay deal - April 6, 2011

Ver.di union members in regional government voted 83% in favour of the recently negotiated pay deal that runs to December 2012. The deal includes a 1.5% increase this year plus € 360 as a lump sum. The increase in 2012 will be a flat-rate amount of € 17 per month plus 1.9% which the union says is worth around 2.55%. Ver.di is now urging all regional governments (except Hessen and Berlin that have separate agreements) to implement the new agreement immediately. This is in response to threats from regional employers in Bayern and Saarland not to honour the deal (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 December 2010 and Year 4 January and March 2011).
