Luxembourg - Hospital sector concludes collective agreement - June 30, 2017

Trade unions OGBL and LCGB had to go a long way before they could reach an agreement; the negotiations for the hospital sector with the FHL Hospital Federation took 2 years. The collective agreement leads to substantial improvements for all 9,000 hospital workers. It includes direct wage increases (2.2% from 1 January 2017), one-off payments in the course of 2017 and better pay scale with improved career paths (entering into effect in October 2017).
