Germany -Unions secure 2.7% increase at RWE -December 5, 2011

On 29 November the two unions involved, IG BCE and ver.di, reached agreement with the German energy group RWE services union on a 13-month deal for the company’s 25,000 employees in Germany. In mid-November, in the run up to the settlement, unions had threatened warning strikes. The new deal provides a 2.7% salary increase from 1 December 2011, and sets out new talks on improving job security and trainee prospects. A binding agreement was reached to open discussions in the second quarter of 2012 on the renewal of the Job Security Agreement, due to expire by the end of 2012, to safeguard jobs in the group.
