Definitions

The social partners have agreed on a monthly gross minimum wage of €1,500 for all sectors, to be implemented nationally by 2020. The new minimum wage is to be implemented via sectoral collective agreements (which take place year-round) by 2020 (in all those sectors where the minimum wage is currently lower). The rate has already been implemented in several sectors in this year’s spring collective bargaining rounds. In other sectors, agreements on a gradual implementation by 2020 were made.

Each sector has its own timeline. In the textile industry, for example, the lowest monthly incomes are to be increased to €1,500 (from their current level of €1,325) by 1 December 2018; in the  hotel and restaurant sector, the increase will be from €1,420 to €1,500 by May 2018, and for the hairdressing sector to €1,500 by April 2019.
