The index of wages according to collective labour agreements measures the evolution of wages and salaries (per employee or per hour) determined by contractual provisions set by collective agreements; the indices are calculated with reference to the fixed employment structure of the base period (December 2010).

At the end of May 2016 the coverage rate (share of national collective agreements in force for the wage setting aspects) was 36.0 per cent in terms of employees and 34.8 per cent in terms of the total amount of wages.

In May 2016 the hourly index and the per employee index were unchanged from the previous month.

Compared with May 2015 both indices increased by 0.6 per cent.

During the period January-May 2016 the hourly index and the per employee index rose by 0.7 per cent compared to the same period of the previous year.
