Serbia -Employers want reduction of public sector wage -August 06, 2014

The central employers’ organisation has stated that the fund of gross salaries in the public sector must be reduced by 25%. The organisation said that it is better to do it now and avoid bankruptcy, than to afterwards cut salaries by 40%.

The central employers’ organisation has stated that the fund of gross salaries in the public sector must be reduced by 25%. The organisation said that it is better to do it now and avoid bankruptcy, than to afterwards cut salaries by 40%. The employers also requested a reduction of taxes and contributions paid for salaries from 65 to 40%. They claim that this would make workers more competitive than those in the Czech Republic, where the gross wage is the same as in Serbia, ‘but workers take home more money and give less to the state and less to the pension fund.’
