Regional government pay claim of €50 plus 3%

Germany
A pay claim of €50 plus 3% has been put forward by ver.di’s collective bargaining committee for regional government. The agreement covers 585,000 workers in 14 of Germany’s 16 Länder (Berlin and Hesse are covered by separate agreements). The pay agreement would also normally be extended to cover the 1.07 million civil servants in the regions. Ver.di says that the level of the increases reflects the need to keep up with living costs and with salary levels in federal and local government. The union says that it is also an important contribution to boosting domestic demand in the country.
