If necessary, company-specific agreements to cancel or postpone pay hikes can be negotiated.
The parties have also agreed on the implementation of labour-cost lowering measures such as the possibility to simplify overtime pay.
It was also agreed to start a restructuring of the collective labour agreement with the overall aim of increasing productivity and promoting local agreements.
