The UJF and the association Service Sectors Employers (Palta) have reached a solution to the deadlock at talks for a new collective agreement covering 160 content creators at the commercial television broadcaster MTV. The agreement was reached through the National Conciliator’s Offices, the state mediator for labour disputes.
The agreement, which still has to be ratified by the boards of the UJF and Palta, will see a pay increase of 3,7 per cent and eliminates the extra working hours imposed by the Competitive Pact. The pact was designed by the previous government in an effort to increase employee working hours.
Acceptance of the agreement will forestall strike action, announced 25 February and planned to start 10 March.
