Czech Republic -Governments wants social partners’ backing for plan against unemployment -April 09, 2013

The ministers of Industry and Trade and of Labour and Social Affairs have started talks with employers’ organisations and trade unions to discuss a plan to tackle unemployment. Trade unions, who already announced they would campaign against the government (see January 2013 newsletter), are suspicious of the time of the plan just ahead of the 2014 general elections. The plan against unemployment contains subsidies to start-ups, businesses that employ people under thirty, lightening the bureaucratic burden on firms, investment in technical education and a raise in the minimum wage. Unemployment is currently at 8%.
