Czech Republic -Unions demand wage rise to equal inflation -October 04, 2012

The national trade union confederation CMKOS has made known that it will be seeking wage increases to at least equal the rise in inflation next year. CMKOS said it will demand higher wage increases from companies that are doing well, but that the inflation increase will serve as the lower limit for collective bargaining. Central bank and government estimates indicate inflation is expected to be just over 2% but will be largely dependent on a possible increase in VAT rates.
