Pay rise

DLO employees will probably get a 0.75 percent pay rise. The unions and executive board reached a draft agreement last week. The pay rise will be backdated to 1 July 2005. The unions still have to present the agreement to their members. The collective bargaining agreement (CAO) has been changed: employees who are sick will no longer receive full pay for two years. After six months, sick employees will receive only eighty percent of their salary. DLO employees will receive an end-of-year bonus of 0.5 percent in December, and 150 euros extra for a full-time position in their January pay packet. / KV
