The Board of Pardia approved the state’s negotiation result

On 30 June, the Board of Pardia approved the negotiation result on implementing the salary solution for the second period of the Pact for Employment and Growth.

Niko Simola, the Chairman of Pardia, is pleased that the increases followed a so-called mixed policy, which guarantees fair salary revisions for all members and also promotes the implementation of salary equality.

  • The job-specific pay components, in accordance with the General Collective Agreement for Government, will be raised starting from 1 February 2016 by 13.00 euros per month or by 0.43 per cent at minimum. The percentage increase is used if the task-specific pay of the requirement level is more than 3,023 euros per month.
  • The pay scales for (corresponding) job-specific pay components, as well as the corresponding and individual pay components, experience-based pay components, and other pay components determined in relation to pay scales, will be revised to match the across-the-board increase.
  • The salaries determined by total wages and salaries in euros will be revised by 16.00 euros per month; however, by 0.43 per cent at minimum.
  • The allowances and salary supplements in euros that must be revised based on the existing collective agreements, or that have been revised based on established practice during previous agreement periods by across-the-board increases, will be raised by 0.43 per cent starting from 1 February 2016.
  • The monthly compensation for full-time and part-time shop stewards and occupational safety representatives will be raised starting from 1 February 2016 by 0.43 per cent, and the minimum amount of monthly compensation will be raised to 75.32 euros.
