Food workers getting collective labor agreement

Thousands of employees at bars, restaurants, tavernas, grill houses and fast-food outlets will be protected by a collective labor agreement within the coming weeks, following a decision on Monday by the Supreme Labor Council.

More than 400,000 employees are expected to benefit from the decision, which foresees fixed terms of employment and pay for workers in the sector, as outlined in a collective labor agreement that was drawn up last year and approved by the council on Monday.

The new contract is compulsory and, most importantly, foresees pay hikes for many workers in the sector, which is notorious for flouting labor laws and rules.
