Public service unions announced that they will be seeking pay increases in 2015 if public finances continue to improve. From the beginning of the financial and economic crisis, public service unions and the government have agreed on wage moderation in exchange for job guarantees. The unions feel that civil servants have borne a disproportional amount of the burden of the country’s reforms and deserve to be recompensed as soon as the country situation improves.
