Rafræn kosning um verkfall - Vote on strike

Rafræn atkvæðagreiðsla stendur nú yfir um boðun verkfalls í kjölfar þess að  viðræðum við Samtök atvinnulífsins um endurnýjun á kjarasamningi sem rann út þann 28. febrúar sl. var slitið. Atkvæðagreiðslan er leynileg og tekur til þeirra félagsmanna FIT sem taka laun og/eða réttindi samkvæmt kjarasamningi Samiðnar f.h. aðildarfélaga og Samtaka atvinnulífsins eða Meistarasambands byggingamanna.

Bréf með aðgangsorði hafa verið sett í póst og eru að berast þeim félagsmönnum FIT sem eru á kjörskrá. Athugið að atkvæðagreiðslan á ekki við þá félagsmenn sem starfa eftir öðrum kjarasamningum en um er getið, svo sem kjarasmaningi við Bílgreinasambandið, félag pípulagningameistara, ríki, Reykjavíkurborg ofl.

Dear union member

Electronic voting is now open on strike action. The negotiators with SA (The federation of Icelandic Employers) about a new wage contract have come to a full stop. Those members of FIT who work on the basis of collective wage agreement with SA are entitled to vote.

If voted on, the strike will be as follows.
From 00:00 on June the 10th to 24:00 on June 16th and again indefinitely 00:00 on August 24th

I want to pass on voting - (Ég tek ekki afstöðu)

The mediator’s proposal contains following changes to the Agreement.

Wages will increase by 20%
Minimum wages for Worker with “sveinspróf” will be ISK 381.326
Gap between rates will be 3%
Go over ratios between groups in salary schedule and connect salary bracket to qulification
December and vacation bonus will be half of one’s monthly wage
Aðfangadagur (day before Christmas day) and gamlársdagur (last day of the year) will be a paid holiday for those who do not have it already
New collective agreement will be valid from March 1st 2015
These are reasonable demands according to the reality of the Icelandic labour market and community. Despite this, there is a big gap between the Unions and SA. At this point it is pointless to continue the discussions. In order to move our issues ahead and follow our demands, it is necessary to obtain the permission of union members to convene a strike.

We urge members to participate in the vote. Good participation and good consensus sends an important message to the negotiating parties. Our goal for the Icelandic labour market is to be on the same level as the other Nordic countries and that people can live a decent family life on daytime wages. United we can achieve our goals.
