Netherlands - Wages outpace inflation - October 31, 2016

The increase of collectively agreed wages has reached a seven-year high in the 3rd quarter of 2016. Compared to last year, wages went up with 2.1%. Statistical data indicate that, since the 3rd quarter of 2014, the increase of collectively agreed wages outpaces inflation. The difference between the wage increase and the inflation (at 0.1%) has reached a size that was last noted in 1986. Wages increased most for civil servants, who benefited from a 3.5% rise after several years of frozen pay. Private sector wages increased by an average of 1.9% and in public organisations by 1.1%.
