More money for tobacco workers

07 Apr 2021. Tobacco company workers and the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) have signed a two-year collective work agreement with a 1 per cent wage increase from 1 January 2021, reports ekathimerini.com.

The agreement between SEV and the Federation of Greek Tobacco Industry Employees covers all tobacco companies in the country and also provides for new specializations, based on the sector’s needs, as well as a working group to update the skills of current employees.

Executive Committee President Efthymios Vidalis said that SEV, “responding to its institutional role, signed the tobacco industry collective work agreement which covers the needs of business members. Our aim is the productive operation of businesses in every sector, the maintenance and boosting of productive and viable job positions, and the guarantee of labour peace and prosperity of workers.”

According to the report, the sector employs over 2,500 people. The National Statistical Service has estimated that the industrial production index of the sector registered a 11.5 per cent growth in 2020 compared to 2019.
