Austria -Metal workers conclude pay deal -October 27, 2014

After a marathon meeting of negotiations lasting 11 hours, the collective bargaining partners in the largest subsector of the metal industry (the FMMI - the employers’ federation for machinery and metal-ware and the trade unions PRO-GE and DPA-djp) agreed on a 2.1% pay increase (0.4% beyond the country’s inflation rate) for the 120,000 employees in the subsector.

The negotiations started (see our July 2013 Newsletter) in a tarnished climate, because of the break with the tradition to negotiate for an industry-wide agreement. However, it is quite probable that the other subsectors will conclude a similar deal. The entrance date of the one-year agreement is 1 November 2014. The minimum wage will increase from €1,688.71 to €1,724.17.
