Austria -Collective bargaining in metal stranded from the scratch -September 25, 2015

The trendsetting autumn negotiations in the metal sector stranded already from the very beginning. The employers’ Association of Machinery & Metalware Industries (FMMI - the biggest of the six employers’ bodies involved in the negotiations) suspended their participation on 24 September with the argument that FMMI was not informed about a governmental campaign to reduce unemployment. Trade unions PRO-GE and GPA.djp formulated a resolution and announced company gatherings on 7 October in order to inform the membership about the FMMI position. The FMMI attitude towards bargaining has changed in recent years from partnership into confrontation (see earlier Newsletters).
