Estonia -Unions call for one-year minimum wage agreement -September 16, 2015

The board of the Estonian Trade Union Confederation has agreed to the principle proposed by the State Arbitrator that the minimum wage could form 41% of the average gross wage. Based on a Finance Ministry's forecast, which the arbitrator had proposed, the monthly minimum wage in 2016 should be 452 euro. The arbitrator also proposed 460 euros as the minimum wage for 2017. The trade unions have rejected this and want to conclude just a one-year agreement and to start 2017 minimum wage negotiations in the near future.
