Czech Republic -Employers against minimum wage increase -September 15, 2014

Government officials, trade union leaders and employers have failed to agree on a hike of minimal wage by CZK 700. Despite employer objections, the ministry of labour and social affairs announced on 15 September that it will be raising the minimum wage.

Government officials, trade union leaders and employers have failed to agree on a hike of minimal wage by CZK 700. Employers opposed the Social Democratic proposal, arguing that the government and trade unions previously agreed to a CZK 500 rise from the present 8,500 crowns to 9,000, starting from January 2015. Despite employer objections, the ministry of labour and social affairs announced on 15 September that it will be raising the minimum wage.
