Estonia -Minimum wage deal reached -October 14, 2015

After mediated negotiations, trade unions and the employers’ confederation have reached an agreement to raise the minimum wage to €430 in 2016 and €470 in 2017. As reported in last month’s newsletter, social partners failed to reach an agreement and a public conciliator proposed to raise the minimum wage to €440 by 2016 and €460 the year after. Employers rejected the offer, but have now accepted a slight smaller increase in 2016, compensated by a higher increase in 2017.
