The employer organisations in private healthcare - Aris and Aiop - have finally ratified the sector agreement covering 100000 workers. After three years of negotiations an agreement was finalised in June but the employers suddenly stepped back from ratification. Following demonstrations and a national strike on 16 September along with pressure from the health minister and regional authorities, Aris and Aiop confirmed that they would ratify the agreement. This is the first renewal for 14 years. The unions have said that they will ensure that the agreement is fully implemented company by company.

Jun. 15, 2020 Fourteen years after the last agreement expired and with a national strike threatened for 12 June, the three public service federations – Fp Cgil, Cisl Fp and Uil Fpl – finally pressured the employers – Aris and Aiop – to sign a new deal covering around 100,000 workers in private healthcare. The main increase of EUR 154 is worth 4.2% but there will also be a EUR 1000 lump sum paid in two stages.
