IG Metall has concluded a new agreement with employers’ associations IGZ and BAP to increase the pay of temporary workers. The agreement will come into force on 1 January 2014 and will be valid until the end of 2016. In three steps, the wages of temp workers will increase with 9.6% in West Germany and with 12.8% in East Germany. The agreement sets a minimum wage of €8.5o per hour and prohibits companies from employing temporary workers as strike breakers. IG Metall has called for more actions to curb precarious work.
