Germany - Bargaining in painters’ sector with no result - August 31, 2018

Trade union IG Bau that has been rather successful this summer with its negotiations broke up the talks with the employers in the painters’ sector (with around 130,000 workers). The union said that the employers came up with a ‘subterranean’ proposal. The very meagre proposal that only referred to a wage improvement oriented at the inflation rates (between 2.1 and 2.65%) should run over a period of 29 months.
