Investigation of the Consequences of Various Main Collective Agreements in the Government Sector

Since 2016, the government sector has had two identical main collective agreements. This project aims to illuminate the consequences of two different main collective agreements in the government sector's tariff area. Specifically, the assessments should relate to the relationship between central and local wage formation, consideration for minimum wage, low wages, and equal pay, the preservation of flexibility regarding changes and adjustments in the labour market, the ability to recruit and retain competent workforce, handling of the unorganized, and consideration for non-negotiability and equal treatment.
