The Austrian government has largely given in to the demands of the two unions involved, the Gewerkschaft ™ffentlicher Dienst (G™D) and the Gewerkschaft der Gemeindebediensteten (GdG) of the ™GB confederation, and agreed on a one-year wage agreement for 2008, covering public servants of the state, federal states (L„nder) and municipalities. On average, their incomes will increase by 3.3% on January 1, 2008: through compensations by 2.7%, with on top a non-recurrent allowance for everybody of Euro 175 in May 2008. The agreement implies the highest wage increases since years. Moreover, it has equalizing effects: those with the lowest incomes will receive a 3.8% wage increase, and those with the highest incomes 2.7%.
Other recent pay settlements in Austria include 3.3% pay rises for 70,000 employees of banks and financial institutions, and a 3.4% increase for private-sector bus drivers.
