Leinfelden-Echterdingen (dpa/lsw) - The large collective bargaining committee of the Baden-Württemberg IG Metall approved the pilot agreement in Ludwigsburg on Tuesday. District manager Roman Zitzelsberger said in Leinfelden-Echterdingen (Esslingen district): "The collective bargaining result is a good compromise and hurts in some places. Nevertheless, the response from the companies is positive." There had been occasional criticism of the conclusion.
In mid-November, IG Metall and employers had reached a collective agreement for the German metal and electrical industry. For the 3.9 million employees in the industry, wage increases of 5.2 percent by June 2023 and another 3.3 percent from May 2024 were agreed for a period of 24 months. In addition, there are tax-free one-off payments totaling 3,000 euros.
