Austria - Metal workers come to an agreement - November 30, 2016

The trade unions PRO-GE and GPA-djp and the Association of Austrian Machinery and Metalware (FMMI), reached an agreement on a 1.68% salary increase on average for the 120,000 employees in the metal sector. The agreement is valid for 12 months from 1 November 2016 on. Part of the deal is a 2% increase for wages at the low end of the pay scale and a 1.75% increase for apprentices pay. As usual, this deal has set the scene for other metal branches. Shortly after a similar agreement was concluded in the metal mining and gas branches and the vehicle industry.
