Germany -Agreement for the metal sector concluded -May 21, 2012

After a period of warning strikes the partners in bargaining in the metal sector have concluded an agreement that includes a 4.3% wage raise for the sector’s 3.6 million workers. The deal between IG Metall union and employers in southern Baden-Wuerttemberg state — home to carmakers Daimler and Porsche — includes the wage raise, secures the position of apprentices and somewhat limits the use of temporary workers. The metal industry association president Martin Kannengiesser said the deal with a 13-month duration, initially reached for the state’s 800,000 metal workers, will be applied to all of Germany.
