Swiss retailer Migros has announced it will increase wages by between 0.5% and 0.9%, commencing 1 January.
The group said that the agreement was put forward following 'constructive dialogue' with its internal and external social partners.
"We are pleased that together with our internal and external social partners, we have been able to achieve a joint solution that is acceptable under the demanding market conditions," commented Sarah Kreienbühl, member of the directorate general of Migros-Landes-Gesamtarbeitsvertrag (MGB).
The internal social partner involved in the negotiations is Lako (Landeskommission der Migros-Gruppe), while the external social partners are Kaufmännische Verband and the Metzgereipersonal-Verband der Schweiz.
"The Migros Group has had a turbulent year. The wage increases are an important signal for employees," commented a Kaufmännische Verband spokesperson.
