The four salary levels of the grid should respectively increase by 5.85%, 5.82%, 5.99% and 7.06% to reach 10.85 euros gross hourly rate (current minimum wage), 10.90 euros , 10.97 euros and 11.21 euros.

The mileage allowances enjoyed by employees in the sector will go from 22 to 35 cents.

The personal services sector (early childhood, disability, seniors, cleaning and various aids) employs around 200,000 people in France. Low-income earners and women are very present. In full swing, this branch weighs around fifteen billion euros in annual turnover.

The advances mentioned on Thursday were made possible by the reversal of Synerpa Domicile (10.47% of employer representation in the branch).

“In a context of high inflation and tension on energy prices, Synerpa Domicile wished to review its position by allowing these agreements to apply to all employees in the private sector”, indicated to the AFP Florence Arnaiz-Maumé, general delegate of Synerpa.

Initially, his organization had announced its intention to unite with the Fesp (44.20%) to oppose the Fedesap proposal (37.38%), while the representative unions had reached the necessary threshold for the agreements apply.

“We are delighted that the Synerpa Domicile does not oppose and that this text can see the light of day”, reacted Julien Jourdan, director general of Fedesap, while the CFDT “welcomed this decision” in a press release.

These two employers’ organizations “pose a threat to the entire sector”, deplores for its part in a press release the Fesp, adding that these increases could “not be supported by a large number of operators in the branch” .

“In the territories, and more particularly the rural territories, such an increase in the minimum threshold of mileage allowances reduced to the total volume of kilometers carried out by their employees” will have a financial impact, assures the Fesp.

Given the administrative extension deadlines, these agreements could enter into force in September.

“Since the Smic is likely to increase further by the end of the year, the next negotiations will be less difficult”, appreciates Stéphanie Eymeric (FO).
