Germany - Pay deal at RWE - August 31, 2016

Trade unions IG BCE (chemical/miners) and ver.di (services) reached an agreement with RWE, the country’s second biggest utility, to increase workers' pay. RWE's wage contract proposal includes a 1 percent rise in annual pay on 1 January 2017 and again on 1 January 2018 and covers 24 months. Workers at company divisions not offering early retirement will receive a one-off payment of 1,000 euro in 2017 as part of the deal that excludes staff at subsidiaries RWE Generation SE and RWE Power AG. Shortly before the IG BCE deal, the services trade union ver.di had agreed a similar deal for the (sustainable) electricity sector.
