In its annual report on wage developments in Europe, the European Industrial Relations Observatory (EIRO) finds that nominal wage increases in collectively agreed wages were lower in 2013 than in 2012. However, due to the low inflation throughout Europe, real wages did increase at a higher rate. The lowest wage growth was reported in the public sector, which in many countries is still subject to a pay freeze.
