Belgium - Social partners draft interprofessional agreement - January 31, 2017

Trade union organisations and the employers have adopted a social agreement for 2017-2018, paving the way for a 1.1% annual wage rise on top of pay scale increases and automatic wage indexation. The agreement marks a return to the system of social dialogue. Next to wage increases, the agreement includes an increase of the age of early retirement for employees made redundant as a result of corporate restructuring, workers in strenuous occupations and long-serving employees. As of 2019, employees in these groups will no longer be eligible to join early pension schemes from the age of 55, but must instead wait until they are 60.
