Unions negotiate better leave and service-related provisions

Austria

The vida and GPD-djp trade unions have negotiated new provisions that will increase pay and holiday entitlement for many of the 6000 employees of the Diakonie church welfare organisation. Under new rules all of the maximum 22-month parental leave will be taken into account in any service-related pay and conditions calculations.

The unions believe that these provisions will particularly benefit women workers.
