Level of training budgets differs greatlyConcrete agreements have been made in many collective labor agreements about voluntary training of employees, but there are large differences in the level of this training budget. An employee at a municipality receives twenty-six times as much budget for (additional) training as an employee in the Retail Non-Food collective labor agreement. Employees at the municipality receive a minimum of 3,909.72 euros per year, while an employee in Retail Non-Food has to be satisfied with only 150 euros per year.
Training budget for employee not always self-evident
In seven of the examined collective agreements, which cover a total of more than 750,000 employees, no explicit budgets for voluntary training have been defined. Employees in the metal and technology sector and within cleaning and window cleaning companies, for example, cannot rely on an amount for voluntary training on the basis of their collective labor agreement.
Even within the same collective labor agreement, not all employees are entitled to the same training budget. For example, in the collective labor agreement of Construction and Infrastructure, construction site employees receive 595.99 euros per year for voluntary training, while administrative employees have to settle for less than half. The difference in the training budget can be explained by the difference in the physical nature of the two functions with regard to the need for retraining at a later age.
