Luxembourg -Last minute deal averts strike in construction sector -July 12, 2013

After four years of negotiations, trade unions OGBL and LCGB have reached an agreement with employers in the construction sector. The collective agreement narrowly averts a strike that was called for 17 July 2013 and includes hikes in tariff wages as well as end-of-year premiums and better safety provisions on the work site. A working group will be established to investigate how former employees can benefit from the wage increases. The new agreement does neither include re-negotiated working hours, annual leave and bad weather compensation, which employers wanted, nor any retroactive wage increases, demanded previously by the trade unions.
