Greece -Private sector agreement signed -March 26, 2014

The employers’ organisations in the private sector and the trade union federation GSEE have agreed on a national collective agreement (EGSEE), retrospective from 1 January 2014 and ending 31December 2014. Social partners did not discuss the issue of minimum wage, which is set by law. Nevertheless, a special clause was introduced according to which, if this legislation changed while the current agreement is in effect, then direct negotiations would start regarding the wage levels of the national collective agreement. Thus, the negotiations were limited to the renewal of existing rights. However, a new arrangement of parental leave was introduced.
