After the nightly agreement, the employee representatives Karl Dürtscher (GPA) and Rainer Wimmer (PRO-GE) were satisfied with the agreement, after all it was sustainable, since the one-off payments desired by the employers were not made. It was also emphasized that low incomes in particular will be increased. “We managed to achieve real wage growth in an extraordinary situation,” Wimmer told journalists.

Employer chairman Christian Knill also spoke of an extraordinary situation, but ultimately both sides moved – in the interests of social peace and planning security. He regretted that it had not been possible to make one-off payments palatable to the unions. Regarding the costs, Knill said that personnel expenses in the metalworking industry would be around nine billion, so future wage and salary increases would certainly involve considerable sums.

Four rounds of negotiations were necessary for the agreement, today a good 12 hours were negotiated in the Chamber of Commerce in Vienna. The employee representatives of GPA and PRO-GE started the negotiations with a demand for 10.6 percent more wages and salaries. The basis for haggling is traditionally the inflation rate of the past twelve months, which was 6.4 percent.
