The ver.di service union has negotiated a new collective agreement covering 8500 employees of the Sana private healthcare group. The 24-month agreement will run until 31 May 2022 and will mean pay increases of 6%-18% as workers are moved on to new pay scales that bring them in line with pay in public sector hospitals. The deal includes a EUR 650 lump sum to cover the period June to December 2020 and then from 1 January 2021 employees in acute hospitals will move onto the new pay structure while other workers will get a 3.5% rise. From 1 January 2022 a new pay structure will apply in rehabilitation clinics and there will be a general pay rise of 2.5%. As part of the agreement ver.di members will also get an extra two days' leave. The agreement covers 16 facilities in the Sana Group. Other arrangements apply elsewhere with 10 facilities applying the public sector agreement.

May. 28, 2019 The ver.di health union in the Baden-Württemberg region has successfully negotiated a new pay deal with the Schmieder group of rehabilitation clinics that brings the pay of the 2000 employees in line with pay in municipal hospitals. The agreement will run until 31 March 2021 when the union will again aim to keep pay in alignment. There is only one other private health facility in the region - a non-profit organisation - that is also in line with the public sector. Ver.di sees the Schmieder deal as setting the standard and negotiated just in time to put pressure on the Waldberg-Zeil clinic in Oberschwaben where the next round of negotiations takes place on 19 June and where 600 workers have already taken strike action.
Sep. 14, 2018 Workers in public administration and some other public services will see their pay rise by at least 5% in 2019, with higher increases for low-paid workers in some areas including the departments of justice, culture, labour and social administration. There will higher increases of 15% and 10% for teachers and non-teaching staff in education while the security forces will get between 2% and 6%. The increase for health workers has yet to be confirmed. The OSZSP health union wants a pay rise of 10% across the board which it argues has been promised by the prime minister. However, the health minister has proposed a 10% increase in the wage bill but with different increases for different groups of workers. In a recent meeting with OSZSP, the Czech Nurses' Association confirmed its support for a 10% increase.
Jun. 05, 2020 After four rounds of negotiations it was agreed that two pay rises of 2% foreseen for this year would be postponed and paid in January 2021. The existing collective agreement provided for the pay increases along with increases in other allowances and the Christmas bonus and the government had initially wanted to freeze all pay and allowances. However, the postponement was agreed and other allowances will be increased while the Christmas bonus will be negotiated later in the year.
