Czech Republic -General strike that made the regime tumble -November 27, 2014

The prime minister announced that the minimum wage will be raised by 700 crowns to 9,200 crowns (€334) as of January 2015.

The Bohemian and Moravian Confederation of Trade Unions (CMKOS) devoted an assembly to the 25th anniversary of the general strike that made the regime tumble. But, people are still afraid to join the trade unions even after 25 years of their life in freedom. Whilst the trade union thanked the actual government for a readiness for dialogue and growth in the minimum wage it criticised the government over disputes of ministers, the civil service law and increase in salaries of top state officials. The prime minister announced that the minimum wage will be raised by 700 crowns to 9,200 crowns (€334) as of January 2015.
