The tension is related to this year’s settlement. Today’s presentation of the allegations showed that the two sides are somewhat far apart. The parties will begin negotiations before Easter, April 21 – the goal is, as always, to agree on a solution.
However, this was not the case with the previous major settlement in 2020, which ended in a major strike. The requirements then as they are now were that members should approach the industry average wage.
Purchasing power and safety check
The union is interested in increasing the purchasing power of the members and that all work is done during paid working hours. Increasing wages also contributes to making the industry a more attractive workplace for more people.
It’s not just about wages. Security is one of the primary areas that should be discussed. The parties must agree, among other things, on what to do in the security check, and the amount of time allotted to the task.
