Agricultural workers, the vast majority – if not all – of foreign workers, are considered the most vulnerable and their exclusion and non-coverage by the introduction of a National Minimum Wage that has been promoted has provoked reactions.
However, agricultural organizations, which act as employers' organizations in the field of agriculture, although they do not seem to have been asked about the issue in the ongoing dialogue in the Labor Advisory Board, consider that the exception is rightly discussed, since, as they say. , there is a collective bargaining agreement in the industry, further arguing that what is provided for and paid far exceeds the existing minimum applicable to specific professions – & nbsp; saleswomen/salespeople, school assistants, clerks, etc.

They also claim that lately, due to the accuracy of goods and services and the spike in inflation, they are forced to give increases every month, since both the cost of housing and food and travel in some cases, which they offer, has increased significantly. p>
Housing and food
Speaking to “F”, the general secretary of PEK Christos Papapetrou said that the accuracy observed recently has increased labor costs for farmers, despite the fact that the producer remains with the same income. He noted that Cypriots no longer work in the sector, as a result of which they are forced to apply for permits for employment of foreign personnel from third countries, but on the basis of collective agreements and procedures controlled by the competent state services. In essence, he said, because of inflation and since employees are clearly getting what the contract stipulates, “it is like giving an increase every month, since the cost of accommodation, the cost of electricity and food prices have increased,” he said. of PEK, adding that the purchasing power of employees has not been affected, since the cost of accommodation and food is borne by the employer. Mr. Papapetrou also argued that the inclusion of workers in agriculture is logical, due to the existence of a collective agreement, but also that there was no contact with agricultural organizations on the issue. He finally mentioned that the problem in the industry today is still the abandonment of employment by employees, since many foreigners who come leave their employers.
« It exceeds one thousand euros »
Speaking to “F”, the general secretary of Panagrotikos, Tassos Giapanis, developed similar positions, with the latter recording, however, his agreement with the exclusion of agricultural workers from the National Minimum Wage. For the sector, Mr. Giapanis argued, the national minimum wage is not needed, since, as he said, labor costs already exceed 1000 euros per month, while there is a collective agreement that has just been signed, which already provides for the payment of the existing minimum salary for those who do not offer employees housing and food. In this context, he further assessed that any inclusion of the industry in the National Minimum Wage would not make a significant difference, stating in turn that the problem today in labor is the “exploitation” of workers from various circuits, which urge them to leave. their employers.
In turn, he noted that recently, in addition to what the contract provides, agricultural employers have shouldered significant increases due to accuracy, as most offer housing, food and transportation to their employees, without this increased cost being passed on. in their products. Mr. Giapanis admitted that Cypriots and non-Cypriots no longer work in the sector, noting that this is due not so much to the salaries, which are at least the minimum offered, but to our mentality but also to the fact that the job is difficult. He also said that there are not enough incentives in this direction.
In his own statements, the general secretary of EKA Panikos Hambas also stated that in the sector there is a collective agreement with the signatures of the agricultural organizations and the unions and that what is needed is the observance of the agreement and not the national minimum wage. He estimated, speaking in turn to “F”, that the cost of employing foreign workers for a farmer exceeds 1000 euros per month, since under the contracts signed in the Department of Labor the employer is obliged to provide, in addition to the remuneration provided by the contract, housing and food, while as he said now in their entirety the employers also offer a means of transportation for the movements of the employees but also internet. Asked if the contract is being implemented, he said that it should be implemented, calling the competent services for controls. It is noted, of course, that the unions have their own role to play, both for the observance of the contract and for their living/stay conditions, since the employees are in fact their members, as well as based on the contract, a contribution is deducted from the salary of each employee. for union membership of 1% each month. An amount not at all negligible, given that the number of employees in the sector is around 5 thousand & nbsp; & nbsp;
Purely “at least 400 euros” but with roof and distribution
The current collective bargaining agreement in the agricultural and livestock sectors provides for the payment of the existing minimum wage in cases where housing and food are not provided, as well as a number of other benefits for employees. The contract was signed relatively recently between the agricultural organizations and the unions and is based on the contracts for employment of foreign labor and expires at the end of the year, covering the period from 1.1.2021 to 31.12.2022. It is also mentioned, among other things, that the gross Monthly Salary of an unskilled worker from 1.6.2021 is € 465. It is reported that “from the Gross Monthly Salary will be deducted contribution to the Social Insurance Fund, GESY and the union contribution. If the Employer offers housing and alimony either by agreement or by obligation due to Law, Regulation, Ministerial decision, a relevant amount will also be deducted from the salary “, adding that” in no case but the Net Monthly Salary will not be lower than € 400 ».
It is also stated that free insurance coverage will be provided in accordance with the legislation and that “in cases where food and housing will not be provided, the gross monthly salary will be, from 1/6/2021, at the amount set by the” Law on the Minimum Wage “Ie € 870 per month and € 924 per month after six months of service”. It is also stated that the salary will be changed annually depending on the change of the index.
The contract also stipulates that working hours are set at 80 (hours) per fortnight and are divided into six days within seven days per week and that according to the needs of each company/employer, the schedule can be determined within the framework of 32 – 48 hours per week but also how the daily working hours will be determined by the employer. The contract also provides for overtime, stating in the text of the agreement that work beyond 80 hours per fortnight, will be paid as overtime on a basis of 1: 11/2. “Overtime will be compensated with free time up to one month after it is won, otherwise it will be compensated”, it is clarified. It also provides that at least 10 full-time holidays are granted – & nbsp; New Year, Agia Theophania, Holy Saturday, May 1, August 15, December 25 and 26 and an additional 3 days for a religious or other holiday of the employee's choice – and that those who have continuous service to the same employer for more than one year, they are also entitled to March 25, Shrove Monday and April 1 as holidays – and holidays with full pay.
It is also mentioned that work on a holiday specified by the collective agreement will be reimbursed on a 1: 2 basis. The contract also stipulates that the employee is entitled to receive a number of days of annual leave during the year, in accordance with the Law on Annual Leave with Earnings and that in case of employment for less than one year he will be entitled to a proportion of leave. The contract also stipulates that employees will be given a 13th salary as a tip during the Christmas holidays, but clarified that those who have continuous service for more than one year will be entitled to the same employer. Finally, it is provided, as mentioned, that it will be deducted from the Gross Monthly Salary of the employee 1% as a union contribution. & Nbsp;
