The Federation of General and Special Workers of Iceland (SGS) is calling for a minimum monthly wage hike to ISK 425,000 ($3,660/€3,160), RÚV reports. The federation of trade unions published a list of demands for employers and the government regarding approaching contract negotiations for its members. The list also demands that the lowest wages be made tax free.

The demands also address housing, calling for a coordinated, national effort between the state, local governments, and pension funds to address housing shortages and rising housing costs. SGS also hopes to make registered rental agreements a requirement for landlords.
