If your employer calls IDA’s salary statistics into question, claiming that they rather indicate the trade union’s wishful thinking, you may assure them that IDA’s salary statistics are very reliable.
The salary levels in IDA’s salary statistics are largely comparable to those of DI’s statistics.
IDA’s analysis department explains in a memo that when the different salary definitions and the various populations have been accounted for, the salary levels for the two groups of engineers are practically identical in the statistics from DI and IDA respectively.
Thus we at IDA believe that IDA’s salary statistics are a very reliable tool for our members to use when negotiating salaries with their employers.
If you would like to read the memo, you have come to the right place.
