Bratislava-based carmaker Volkswagen Slovakia and Modern Trade Unions Volkswagen made a deal over a new collective agreement that will be valid for the following four years. The current agreement will expire next month.
They agreed on a gradual increase of tariff salaries and benefits, as well as a five-year guarantee of employment and the prolongation of a break by five more minutes. All the advantages from the previous collective agreement will remain valid.
“I am glad that we, together with trade unions, succeeded in constructive and fair negotiations, and through their result, we send a positive signal to Volkswagen that we are a stable and competitive plant,” said Sebastian Krapoth, a member of the board of directors of Volkswagen Slovakia, as quoted in the press release.
