Estonia -Energy workers demand 15% pay rise -January 28, 2013

The union representing workers at Eesti Energia's Narva Power Plants decided to demand a salary increase of 15% after talks on a collective agreement broke down. The Narva Energia Union said workers are demanding that the raise be made retroactive to January 1 and that their salaries increase a further 10% from 2014. The union has threatened to call a strike if its demands are not met but has not set a date for the action. Workers at another Eesti Energia subsidiary, the Eesti Energia Mining, reached an agreement to avert a strike. The miners will receive a salary increase of 7% after initially demanding 20%.
