Agreement negotiated following sacking threat

Germany Germany
Ver.di has negotiated a new agreement covering 5600 employees of the Damp Group, part of the Fresenius health multinational. The agreement was reached following a major conflict where Fresenius had issued dismissal notices to around 1000 employees of Damp's central services company who had taken strike action to support their demands during the negotiations. Those employees will now have their pay protected if they are transferred to another company. Other employees in the group will get an increase of 3.5% backdated to 1 May 2012 and a 1.4% increase from 1 January 2013. Employees of acute hospitals will get a further increase of 1.4% in August 2013 in line with the public sector agreement.
