Austria -Metal branches reach agreement -November 06, 2015

After a period of intensive negotiations, the trade unions PRO-GE und GPA-djp reached an agreement with the employers in 6 branches of the metal sector on 5 November. The aim of the unions was to keep up a unified result for the whole sector (with in total 180.000 workers). The minimum wage and basic wages will increase by 1.5% and the new minimum wage will amount 1.750.03 euro, as of 1 November 2015. Total duration of the agreement is 12 months. With this result, the strategy of the employers’ organisation FMMI to separate and diversify the negotiations once more failed (see earlier Newsletters on this item).
