Here you can find all details on the current collective agreement.

Wages and salaries:

As of 1 May 2022, actual wages and salaries will be increased by 4.75 per cent, but at least by Euro 120 (cardboard industry: 4.6 per cent, no minimum amount), and CBA wages and minimum salaries by 4.9 per cent.

Apprenticeship income and shift allowances will be increased more:

Apprentice wages: Will be raised in the paper industry from 34.5 to 40 per cent of wage group 1 in the first apprenticeship year, from 43.1 to 50 in the second apprenticeship year, from 53.9 to 55 per cent of wage group 1 in the third apprenticeship year, and the 75.5 per cent of wage group 1 will remain unchanged in the fourth apprenticeship year.
