A robust growth of the minimum wage, an extension of higher collective agreements and changes in temporary employment are the developments with the biggest impact on the labour market in 2014. A revision of the law on collective bargaining, valid as of the beginning of 2014, has reintroduced the extension of higher-level collective agreements to all businesses in a given sector that have not signed individually. The Confederation of Trade Unions (KOZ) praises the revision, pointing out that workers sheltered by collective agreements have 17-19 percent higher wages compared to those who work for employers where such agreements are not signed.
