Employers’ organisation UEL and the government have signed an agreement committing employers to hire 5,000 additional jobseekers, raising the expected number of hired jobseekers in the upcoming three years from 30,000 to 35,000. The agreement includes several concessions from the government, which have not yet been consulted with trade unions. Amongst other things, the coalition intends to increase funding to the employers’ mutual fund, abolish automatic salary increases from non-skilled to skilled minimum wages after ten years in the same job and allow more flexible working hours.
