Red Cross agreement keeps pay in line with public sector

Employees of the Germany Red Cross (DRK) will see their pay increase by 3.5% this year (from 1 July 2012) and then by 2% from 1 January 2013 in a new collective agreement that runs until 31 December 2013. This year's increase is in line with that agreed in federal and local government while next year's rise is just ahead by 0.6%. There are also changes to the pay structure to ensure that there are no differences in pay for new starters and this will mean additional increases on top of the 3.5%. [Read more at > ver.di (DE)->]
