The 2011 wage and salary tariff negotiations with the German labor union, covering approximately 22,000 local national employees of the Sending States Forces (armed forces of the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Canada and Belgium) in Germany have been completed. 

The new agreement is effective through Jan. 31, 2013.

Pay and benefits covered in the Collective Tariff Agreement II, including the new wage and salary tariff agreement, apply to all local national employees of the Sending States Forces and not only to those employees who are union members.
