German term or phrase: Meistergruppen
This term is used with reference to a wage scale category:

"in den beiden höchsten Gehaltsgruppen, Meistergruppen..oder höchsten Entgeltgruppen".

I thought of "categories of foreman" but perhaps someone can suggest something pithier?
Thanks in advance for all suggestions.

Thanks for your help-I am very confused by master tradesmen though-surely these people are never tradesmen? It is a pity more people didn't enter into this debate-
Avicenna does "it works without craftsman" mean that it shoudl read "salary group level of master workers"-that sounds a bit implausible to me. Anyway, many thanks to yJohanna and Avicenna for commenting.
I have a feeling this question isnt entirely settled yet.

Notes to answerer
Asker: hmm Thanks for that suggestion-I have a question. If the "Meistergruppe" in question were onyl those working in the steel industry, would one beentitled to write "master foundry workers" do you think?
