The Confederation of Independent Trade Unions of Bulgaria (CITUB) has claimed that a substantial pay increase is possible without resulting in bankrupting businesses and increasing unemployment. CITUB signals that at least 7-8 branches in the heavy industry sector report productivity rates growth of 17% to 30 %, which means that wages can be increased by 10% to 20%. However, though the productivity in certain sectors increases, at the moment this does not affect wages.
