Municipal employees' new collective agreement applies
the framework agreement


JHL (23.11.2011 - Juhani Artto) Negotiators on the new collective agreement for some 350,000 municipal employees reached common understanding on Wednesday. The end result applies the framework agreement, signed in mid-October by the labour market confederations.

The municipal sector agreement takes effect on 1 January 2012 and expires on 28 February 2014. The cost impact of the first 13 months will be 2.4 per cent. On 1 January 2012 all municipal employees will get a pay rise of 1.7 per cent.

The remaining 0.7 per cent of the pay increase will be used for financing the qualitative changes in the agreement. These changes include, among other things, six days of paid paternity leave and the scrapping of regulations that have discriminated against temporary employees with regard to their annual leave rights. A EUR 150 lump sum will be paid in January 2012.

The latter 13 months provides all employees with a pay rise of 1.46 per cent on 1 February 2013. On top of this a further pay rise which will average 0.6 per cent is to be negotiated at the local level.

The Trade Union for the Public and Welfare Sectors is one of the parties involved in negotiating the municipal employees' collective agreement. JHL's Union Council meets at 10 a.m. on Thursday to either approve or reject the negotiation results.
