The collective agreement between Efling and Reykjavík City has been approved

From the signing of the agreement.

The members of the Efling Union approved with an overwhelming majority a new collective agreement between the union and the city of Reykjavík. Voting on the agreement ended at 10:00 this morning, Friday, July 5.

A total of 88% of those who participated in the voting approved the agreement. Only 9% were against it, while 3% abstained in the voting. Voter turnout was 19 percent.

Negotiations between the negotiation committees of Efling and Reykjavík had been going on since mid-April, without significant results. Therefore, Efling referred the dispute to the state mediator on May 27. The negotiations then got going and a collective agreement was signed on the 20th of June. It has now, as mentioned earlier, been approved in a vote.

Efling’s negotiating committee was satisfied with the success achieved at the negotiating table, and it seems that the overwhelming number of Eflinger members who work for the city agreed with that assessment. A total of 2,329 Efling members work for the City of Reykjavík.

The agreement is valid retroactively from April 1 until March 31, 2028. Efling members who work for the city are encouraged to read the agreement and make sure that all payments are correct during the next salary payment.
