Omniva will contribute nearly 700,000 euros to wage increases at the primary level

Omniva, the Trade Union PRO (PRO), and the Estonian Transport and Road Workers’ Trade Union (ETTA) have entered into an agreement, pursuant to which on 1 July, the wages of more than 800 primary-level workers will increase. The basic wage minimum will increase by 6 per cent on average.

According to Kristi Unt, a Member of the Board of Omniva, it is important to ensure a competitive salary for primary-level workers. To this end, their annual salary fund will be increased by a total of nearly 700,000 euros. ‘Omniva employs hundreds of couriers, mail carriers, customer service representatives, and mail processors. They all do important work for society and are at the heart of our workforce. With this agreement, we are taking a step towards worthier wages,’ said Kristi Unt.

The Chairman of PRO, Kadri Kangur, acknowledges that the goals set ahead of wage negotiations were met and conditions were agreed upon. ‘We managed to reduce the wage gap between regions in most positions. The employer has also made progress in shaping wages, taking into account the employee’s personal responsibility and contribution to the work process,’ Kangur acknowledged the work done. ‘In the near future, we will begin negotiations on a collective agreement, an important aspect of which is social guarantees for employees which would alleviate their economic situation.’

The Chairman of the Board of the Transport and Road Workers’ Trade Union, Üllar Kallas, welcomes the conclusion of the collective remuneration agreement at Omniva. ‘In these anxious and unstable times where inflation is unbelievably high, companies must greatly contribute to employees and wages. This collective agreement allows to achieve the best result by considering employees’ wishes and the employer’s possibilities,’ Kallas added.
