The night meeting brought about the breakthrough in collective bargaining between VW and IG Metall. The employees of the West German plants will receive more wages from May.
The around 100,000 VW employees at the six West German plants and the finance division will get 3.2 percent more money on May 1st of this year. In addition, employees for 2011 for February to April receive one percent of their annual salary, but at least 500 euros. The union IG Metall announced on Tuesday morning in Hanover.
Long night session
The result had been obtained in a long night session. The union had originally asked for six percent more wages for 12 months, the employer side had recently offered 2.9 percent plus a one-off payment for 23 months.
This brings the increase in basic pay forward by eight months. "The company and IG Metall have reached a fair deal that combines a decent wage increase with maintaining competitiveness," said Horst Neumann, Head of Human Resources at VW. The in-house tariff from Volkswagen will continue to be based on the area tariff of the metal industry. "That secures our competitiveness as part of this industry." (AG / dpa)
