Netherlands -Metal workers conclude collective agreements -October 22, 2013

In recent weeks several collective agreements in the metal sector were concluded. The Metal & Technical branches reached an agreement for the period 1 May 2013 to 28 February 2015. The pay deal includes an average increase of the wages over a period of 22 months of 3.5%. Apprentices that have finalised their vocational training receive an extra increase of 3% from 1 January 2014 on, this in order to make the branches more attractive for young workers. Later on this month the Metalektro branches reached an agreement. Wages will be increased with 2.35% from 1 December 2013, with 1.5% from 1 August 2014 and 0.35% from 1 January 2015. Young workers receive an extra increase of 3% from 1 January 2015. The bargaining partners have agreed to campaign against unfair competition and cross-border social dumping.
