Real pay increase for health and social care workers

Austria
The 70,000 workers covered by the health and social care collective agreement will get a 2.4% pay increase from January 2007, ahead of the current inflation rate of 1.1%. The agreement is extended to cover even those employers who are not part of the health and social care employers' organisation that negotiated the deal.
