Italy - Data on contractual wages and employment - June 30, 2016

The index of wages according to collective labour agreements measures the evolution of wages and salaries (per employee or per hour) determined by contractual provisions set by collective agreements; the indices are calculated with reference to the fixed employment structure of the base period (December 2010). At the end of May 2016 the coverage rate (share of national collective agreements in force for the wage setting aspects) was 36.0 per cent in terms of employees and 34.8 per cent in terms of the total amount of wages. The labour market results of the 1st quarter indicate that on the labour supply side, total employment slightly grew to the previous quarter, after a light decrease in the fourth quarter of 2015, but with highly differentiated dynamics among the types of employment. The increase in permanent employees was balanced by the decrease in temporary employment and by the stability of the self-employed.
