A new agreement signed at Heineken Italy saw an increase of EUR 40 in monthly wages for all workers, regardless of their type of contract, in recognition of new skills acquired through the MTS Project (multi-tasking and skilling).

A FLAI-CGIL national officer commented, “This is an important agreement which marks the conclusion of the MTS Project (Multi-Tasking & Skilling) and adds 40 euros per month to workers’ earnings in recognition of their professional development, whilst at the same time valuing the cohesion and inclusion of all workers present in the establishment regardless of the employment relationship or contract ".

This new collective bargaining agreement negotiated at enterprise level which supplements the national-level industry-wide collective agreement covers some 1000 workers at 4 sites and the head office.
