Austria -Wage increase in new agreement for the chemical sector -May 16, 2012

The two unions PRO-GE and GPA-djp representing 43,000 Austrian chemical workers reached 2012-13 wage terms with the Chemical Industry Association Fachverband der Chemischen Industrie (FCIO). After a period of warning strikes and four rounds of negotiations the bargaining partners concluded an agreement that includes a pay increase of 4.5%, effective 1 May and with a duration of 12 months. The deal leads to actual increases for all workers of 4.35%, or at least a monthly minimum increase of €90 that, in essence, will lift the pay for lower salaried workers to over 5%.
