Working time and leave are key demands at Red Cross

Austria Austria

The vida and GPA-djp service unions have broken off negotiations with the Red Cross because they feel their demands are falling on deaf ears. The unions want to see improvements in the collective agreement to bring it in line with comparable agreements with similar employers in the sector. Key demands include a five-day working week as standard, more leave, improvements in relation to split shifts and better allowances for Sunday and night working. They also want to see national approaches to paid breaks and allowances for children rather than different rules in different regions.
