Hungary - Automotive safety workers reach agreement - April 30, 2016

Following a two-hour long strike, the management of automotive safety systems company Autoliv came to an agreement with the Vasas workers trade union. A strike committee was formed in March, after the trade union deemed the 2.5% wage increase by the management to be unacceptable. A strike on 31 March became successful as management later on promised a 10% wage increase for assembly line workers retroactive to 1 January 2016. Blue collar workers who carry out indirect services and administrative staff will both receive a 4% wage increase, while factory workers will receive a 5% increase. Blue collar and factory workers will also receive the previously promised 13th month wage plus HUF 78 thousand in holiday compensation.
