Hungary -Social sector workers demand pay rise -November 16, 2013

Social workers held a demonstration in front of the Ministry of Human Resources on 12 November, the Day of Social Work. The leader of the Independent Health Care Trade Union said that while wage talks in the health-care sector had been successful, employees in the social services faced deteriorating conditions. A workers’ committee in the social sector (SZADB) announced to take action after their demands presented at the demonstration went unnoticed. Their most important demand is that newly raised pay grades set for the health-care sector should be extended to include social work, too, but the government has not responded. Workers in the sector demand a wage rise of 20% on average.
