  • [01] Social dialogue on collective bargaining

  • [01] Social dialogue on collective bargaining

    The government's first trilateral meeting with social partners' representatives (trade unions and employee associations) on labour issues legislation is expected to take place on Wednesday at the Labour ministry.

    According to a report in Sunday's Avgi, the draft law that the Labour ministry is currently working on does not include the timetable for the gradual restitution of the minimum wage, which will be settled with another bill over the next period of time.

    In a letter to the representatives of trade unions and employee associations last week, Labour Minister Panos Skourletis said that the minimum wage would be increased by 10.91 percent to 650 euros gross a month and the daily wage for labourers to 29.05 euros as of October 1 this year while age-based salary distinctions would be scrapped.

    The ministry's target is the gradual restitution by July 2016 of the general minimum wage to the levels of February 2012, namely 751 euros gross.

    Moreover, the new legislation enhances the role of arbitration in labour issues and restitutes the jurisdiction of the Organisation of Mediation and Arbitration (OMED) while several changes are expected to be implemented in collective bargaining.
