The proposal of the Public Employer Delegation was inadequate; Public Employees' Arbitration Board’s decision is unfair
5th Term Collective Agreement Process which will affects around 3.2 million public servants and 2 million retired public servants in Turkey has completed.
Memur-Sen offers an 8 percent raise in salaries for the first six months of 2020 and 7 percent in the second half of 2020, totalling 15 percent. The offer is 6 percent for each half of 2021, totalling 12 percent. Memur-Sen, which is the authorized confederation in 5th Term Collective Agreement Negotiations, did not accept the offer made by the government and even decided to call its members to cease work in order to contest the offer made by the employer representatives since Memur-Sen is asking for a better salary raise for the public servants. The negotiations did not result in a collective agreement. The negotiations referred to the Public Employees' Arbitration Board. Public Employees' Arbitration Board decided that that there will be 4+4% increase for 2020 and 3+3% for 2021 for the public servants in Turkey.
