Switzerland -Wage hike at Nescafé -September 5, 2012

After almost a year of wage conflict, unions and management have agreed upon a wage increase for workers at the Nescafé factory in Orbe. All wages will be increased by 75 Swiss Francs, amounting to a 2% increase for the lowest earning employees and 1.5% for the average worker. Wage negotiations stalled immediately in November 2011 when Nescafé refused a wage offer but were suddenly re-opened in July.
