Pay rose an average 1.6% last year

Wednesday 09 January 2013

The average pay rise in all the collective wage deals agreed in 2012 was 1.6%, according to employers' advisory group AWVN.

This is less than the rate of inflation last year and slightly down on the 1.7% CAO average rise agreed in 2011.

The rise in chemical sector pay was strongest at 2.1% while civil service pay rose just 0.1% - showing government efforts to freeze public sector pay are working.

My Dutch spouse has not seen a pay increase for about 6 years now. He has a government job, and if any thing he is paying out more in taxes and more into the pension plan. Take home pay is SHRINKING
