Following contentious discussions on wage policy (denial of bargaining rights, pay freezes, move toward performance-linked remuneration) at recent Nestlé EWC meetings, the company made a presentation on its remuneration policy at the meeting in October. It became clear that it is Nestlé’s intention to substitute performance-linked remuneration for collective wage increases wherever possible. A further issue of concern is the PE (performance evaluation) process and the consequences of its implementation. These are issues which must remain on the trade union agenda.
