Collective Agreement for Slovenia`s Trade Sector

In recent news, the representatives of the Slovenian Trade Union of Shop Assistants and the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and Industry have reached a collective agreement for the country`s trade sector. This agreement came after several rounds of negotiations and is expected to bring significant benefits to employees and employers alike.

One of the key aspects of the collective agreement is the increase in the minimum wage for employees in the trade sector. Starting from January 2022, the minimum wage will be raised to €940 gross per month, which is a 4.4% increase from the current minimum wage. This will provide a much-needed boost to the income of many employees in the sector, especially those who are on lower wages.

Another important aspect of the collective agreement is the provision of additional benefits for employees. For example, the agreement includes provisions for increased contributions to pension and disability insurance, as well as additional days of paid leave. Employees with more than 15 years of service will also be entitled to an additional week of paid leave.

The collective agreement also includes provisions for the protection of employee rights and the prevention of discrimination in the workplace. This is an important step towards creating a fair and inclusive working environment for all employees in the trade sector.

For employers, the collective agreement provides greater clarity and consistency in terms of labor laws and regulations. This can help to reduce the risk of disputes and legal issues, while also promoting a more stable business environment.

Overall, the collective agreement for Slovenia`s trade sector is a positive development that will bring benefits to both employees and employers. By providing better wages and benefits for employees, while also promoting greater consistency and clarity for employers, this agreement represents a step forward for Slovenia`s trade sector and its economy as a whole.
