Workers get pay boost at care multinational


Independent unions at the scandal-hit care multinational Orpea, have managed to make positive gains in annual negotiations. The CGT reports that the situation has now changed significantly since the position of the in-house union was challenged with the CGT, CFDT and FO winning their case against the company for rigging workplace elections. The CGT says that pay increases this year for non-management staff range from 3% to 7% depending on length of service while management staff get 1%-4% again depending on length of service and whether they benefited from salary adjustments in 2022 or 2023. Other benefits include a €150 payment for on-call shifts, the gradual introduction of a 13th month salary, subsidies for meals or luncheon vouchers and a €776,25 gross payment as a profit-sharing bonus.
