The agreement includes an immediate 3% pay rise, implemented retrospectively from 1 March 2014, and another 2.5% from 1 March 2015 onwards. As a part of the deal, the first pay hike will be at least €90 for any worker, bringing the effecting pay rise up to 3.3%, in order to afford extra consideration to the lowest paid workers. All workers will also be guaranteed a minimum 30 days of annual leave. Trade union Ver.di had also asked for additional allowances or rest days to compensate for high work pressure and to increase the additional pay rate for night shifts from 15% to 20%, but this was refused by employers.
