On Friday 15 January 2021, the Luxembourg Insurance and Reinsurance Association (ACA), the ALEBA banking union and the OGBL and LCGB unions participated in the second negotiation meeting for the renewal of the collective labour agreement for the insurance sector.

The ALEBA union presented its list of demands and the elements (financial and qualitative) that this new agreement should contain in the uncertain and challenging context of the COVID-19 health crisis. The union lamented that it was still waiting for the list of demands of the OGBL and the LCGB.

ALEBA stressed the need to guarantee elements such as doubled notice, the 13th month and economic bonus, annual leave and days of rest, extraordinary leave or access to enhanced training, in addition to maintaining the principles of remuneration or the three-year guarantee. The union also demanded that the 26th day of leave for those over 50 be granted to everyone.

The next meetings are scheduled for 28 January and 10 and 26 February 2021.
