Hungary - Wage agreement at Hungarian State Railways - January 19, 2011

On 18 January the employer and trade unions with the Hungarian State Railway (MÁV) have concluded three agreements, on wages, an amendment with the collective agreement, and on employment. According to the wage agreement, the gross wages of those earning less than HUF 293,400 (€1,070) per month will be compensated for the decline in net wages stemming from personal income tax changes. Under the scope of the collective agreement parties agreed to raise the gross value of benefits-in-kind (cafeteria items) by HUF 12,000 (€44) to HUF 350,000 (€1,280) annually.
