Luxembourg -Another chance for negotiations at ArcelorMittal -December 01, 2013

Only 24 hours before the end of the national conciliation office process, ArcelorMittal and trade unions OGBL and LCGB had still not reached a deal on the next collective agreement. The largest open issue is the number of annual leave days. ArcelorMittal wants to reduce annual leave from 37 to 28 days in order to boost productivity. Unions, however, said they have already compromised on end-of-the-year bonuses and will not make concessions regarding wages or leave days. Both LCBG and OGBL consulted their members about possible industrial action. The LCGB and OGBL delegates decided to give talks for a new collective working agreement another chance, but also said that strike action remains an option.
