Estonia -Energy sector workers accept 9% pay increase -March 28, 2013

Members of the Narva Energia trade union, who clashed with employer Eesti Energia's Narva Power Plants over a wage offer (see January newsletter), were contemplating whether to accept the offer or leave the conciliation process and resort to industrial action. Narva Energia joined the tabled deal that was already accepted by the Independent Union of Miners and Energy Workers. After the disagreement in January, the process moved into a mediation process. The public conciliator produced a wage offer with a 9% increase. The contract that is signed by the two unions and Narva Power Plants will run until the end of 2014.
