Estonia -Unions want to negotiate with operator Transiidikeskus -November 24, 2015

The Estonian Seamen's Independent Union (EMSA) is to turn to a public conciliator because the Estonian transit operator Transiidikeskus refused to start collective agreement talks. The company was earlier in the news because it sacked a union man (see our October Newsletter). Trade union EMSA has formulated two important conditions: monthly salaries should rise as of 2016 by at least 200 euros and seven additional paid vacation days should be given to workers. Transiidikeskus answered via their lawyer that they already had an effective collective agreement and a new elected representative to deal with.
