Hot Autumn – What Metal Processors Are Demanding Now in Wage Increases


Heavy negotiations are underway for the collective labor agreement negotiations for the metal processing industry (approximately 134,000 employees), which will start on September 19. Karl Dürtscher of the private workers’ union, who leads the workers’ negotiations with PRO-GE’s Rainer Wimmer: “We want a real and sustainable increase.”

“Real means it’s more than inflation, and sustainable means it shouldn’t be a one-time payment,” Dürtscher says. It’s going to be a hot autumn and the demands of metallurgists are, as usual, paving the way for many other industries. Dürtscher does not agree with the employers’ argument that the economic outlook is getting bleaker: “Companies have made high profits and the basis for the negotiations is the figures from the past and not the future.”
