The state government wants to adopt the collective bargaining result for the employees of the public service of the federal states also for the civil servants. "I will propose to the parties involved in Baden-Württemberg to transfer the same content of the collective bargaining result to our civil servants," Finance Minister Danyal Bayaz (Greens) told the German Press Agency in Stuttgart on Sunday.
Stuttgart - This serves to keep good specialists in the administration and to attract new ones.
With regard to the collective bargaining result, Bayaz spoke of costs in the range of around 3.4 billion euros for the entire term of 25 months. "This is an enormous challenge for us, but we have made provisions for this in the current double budget for next year."
The minister described the collective bargaining as a "very demanding balancing act between the tight budget situation on the one hand and securing the attractiveness of the public service on the other". The result, however, is a good, balanced compromise. "This is also underlined by the newly negotiated guarantee of employment for trainees."
Employees in the public sector of the federal states will receive special payments and a wage increase of 5.5 percent. This was announced by the trade unions and the collective bargaining association of German states (TdL) on Saturday after three days of talks in Potsdam. As a result, inflation compensation payments totalling 3000 euros are planned. Dpa
