What it’s about and how the demands are?

The trade unions for the workers of the country-six percent more money, but at least 200 euros more per month. For the trainees, there should be more holidays and more salary: a minimum of 100 Euro in the month. The talks have been running longer, the third bargaining round is for the 28. February and 1. March planned. “I do not exclude at the Moment is also an escalation,” said ver.di chief Frank Bsirske.

to achieve, As in other industries, the trade unions try alone, over pure content claims for better conditions for workers. So to be raised for employees in shifts because of the special burden of the additional leave.

money to the employees?

The question is not at all easy to answer, because in the public service, complicated tariffs with regional Differences apply. Hesse, for example, is the only state in a countries tariff. In addition, the content amount of professional experience, and training. These are the criteria for the grouping, which occurs in up to 19 pay groups and up to six levels.

Generally speaking, in the public service, the collective agreements for the Federal government and municipalities (TVöD), and those for the countries (TV-L employees). It is that people with the same profession – for example, geriatric nurse educators, or nurse, depending on the nature of the employer either under the collective agreement of the Federal government, the municipalities or the provinces may fall and, accordingly, different earn.

For educators applies, for example, the so-called TV-SuE (Social science education), if you work in a municipal day-care centre. A teacher from an urban Kita would change in a day-care centre, which is part of a primary school would be linked to the job change also with Changes in the content, even if you actually do the same work. The reason is that schools usually fall under the tariff regulations of the countries.

we Stay with the above-mentioned governess, and that she has ten years of professional experience. In the TV-SuE, you would receive a gross annual salary of a little more than 44,800 euros. In the case of a change in a Basic after-school club she would be at the moment but only on a gross annual salary of a little more than 41.400 Euro. This would be in comparison with almost 3,500 euros less.

This difference is likely to melt, if the trade unions to enforce their demands for the workers of the country. They demand that, especially for the education and care professions, the salaries to the level of public service in the Federation and the municipalities will be increased, so that a comparability is not given.

And as it is with the teachers?

In the case of the teachers it is really complicated, because the teachers of a school can be employed as well as civil servants. In the case of the civil servants, the salary varies from state to state. Most verb deserve has served teachers in the state of Baden-Württemberg. Who teaches at a high school, gets to start almost 4.250, – Euro gross per month. And because the officials pay less taxes, it remains as a merit of a net € 3,170. In Berlin, however, a luckily a teacher goes to a high school with a gross monthly salary of 3.760 Euro, of which, he has a net average of 2,870 thousand euros.

An employee teacher needs to for this Heldtsniveau work for a very long time and not get in age, the same Pension as the civil service teachers. With ten years of professional experience, an employee of Berlin’s teachers earned net about as much as his luckily Mr in the first year of employment. And who is as a lateral entrant goes into the Berlin school service, with ten years of professional experience, worse than the civil service young teachers.

For all employees in the public service of the länder in the East, there is a further exception: While the employees now receive the same salary as their colleagues in the West, compromise you have to accept but in the case of the pension and the Christmas bonus. In addition, the East German employees work in the public service in the section a bit longer than their colleagues in the West (in many Occupations, a 40 instead of a 38.5 or 39 hours per week), as also in the working time, there are regional differences.
