Audi Hungaria management, unions agree on 9% pay rise
The management of Audi Hungaria reached an agreement with unions on Friday on a 9% pay rise, effective July 1, the car maker's press department told state news wire MTI.
Audi Hungaria strives to keep its wages competitive, the press department said, adding that higher inflation made the pay rise necessary.
The department noted that the mid-year pay rise comes on top of a three-year wage agreement reached with workers in 2020 under which pay is climbing by a combined 36%.
Audi Hungaria employs about 12,000 people.
