TU approves new collective agreement for the ICT industry
and salary hikes for technology industry employees


TU (04.10.2010 - Juhani Artto) Minimum working hour regulations allowed for the ICT industry's agency labour

The possibility of strike action in the ICT industry helped smooth the path to a new two-year collective agreement. The board of the Union of Salaried Employees TU approved the negotiation results on Thursday.

The new agreement raises salaries from October by EUR27 per month or at least by 1.1 per cent. Minimum salaries and euro-based allowances are set to go up by 1.35 per cent.

In December a 0.5 per cent salary rise is due to come into effect in companies where the employer and shop stewards have to yet to agree on a concrete solution. If the parties cannot agree on the divvy up or share out of the raise, all salaried employees affected under these circumstances are to be given a 0.25 per cent pay rise and the employer will decide on how the other 0.25 per cent increase is to be distributed.

The parties have agreed to negotiate in April-May 2011 on the autumn 2011 pay rises and on the January 2012 local salary increase.

The new collective agreement includes improvement in regulations concerning agency labour. From now on, minimum working hour regulations can be applied to agency labour.

The new ICT industry collective agreement covers 15,000 salaried employees. The previous agreement expired on June 30.

1.5 per cent increase for technology industry employees

In the technology industry salaries will be raised by 1.0 per cent in October. In addition, an 0.5 per cent rise is to be shared via a local level procedure. The solution, approved on Thursday by TU's board, covers about 30,000 salaried employees.
