Böblingen (dpa / lsw) - The collective bargaining for the approximately one million employees in the metal and electrical industry in the southwest ended on Tuesday evening without an agreement. They will continue on November 17th in Ludwigsburg in the fifth round, as reported by negotiators in Boeblingen.
In the nationwide collective bargaining conflict, IG Metall is demanding eight percent more money for a term of twelve months. In Germany, almost four million people are employed in the industry. The employers' association Südwestmetall had - like the associations in other tariff areas - offered a one-time payment of 3000 euros and an unspecified increase in the salary scales for a period of 30 months.
