Slovenia - Collective agreement for agri-food signed - October 31, 2016

After more than three years of negotiations, a collective bargaining agreement was signed for the agri-food industry, bringing a 0.9% increase in basic gross pay. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GZS) stated that the deal ensures social peace and hence further growth and development. The trade unions and the Cooperatives' Association were a bit more reserved and pointed to several issues that still needed to be tackled, such as better pay for workers. The trade unions announced fresh negotiations to start in spring 2017, after operating results are in, to tackle issues such as travel and meal allowances. According to the trade union's data, the lowest pay in the sector is now 462 euro gross, which is upgraded by company contracts. The average gross monthly salary is estimated at roughly 1,150 euro.
