    Eurofound launches its annual update on collectively agreed pay development in Europe 2012: Quicker growth in agreed pay in 2012 eroded by price hikes Agreed pay rose more quickly in 2012 than in 2011 in many EU countries, but price hikes reduced purchasing power in the majority of Member States with available data. These results come from Eurofound’s annual analysis of collectively agreed pay for 2012, published today.
