Croatia - Unclear if wage deal will put an end to unrest at Zupanja Combine Harvester factory - March 31, 2019

Management of the Same Deutz Fahr Zetelice company reached a wage deal with the Croatian Metal Workers' Union and the striking committee of the company. With the new deal monthly wages will be increased with 65.50 euro in 2019 and a further monthly increase of 15.11 euro in 2020 and 20.15 euro in 2021. It remains unclear if the wage deal will put an end to the industrial unrest at the company because the striking committee made clear not to be particularly satisfied with the new pay deal. Workers initially demanded a monthly increase in gross wage of 99 euro plus an 8% allowance for special working conditions in production. Because management rejected their demands workers went on strike in January 2019 (see our January and February newsletters) but when the supreme court ruled the strike to be illegal, they resumed work on 8 February 2019.
