Slovenia -Negotiations on public wages stagnate -November 06, 2014

Government proposals of a voluntary shorter working week, reduction of the bonus for years of service and lower lunch allowance, as well as lower compensation for commuting costs were rejected by the trade unions. They see the move of the government as a fresh set of measures to cut the public sector wage bill.

Government proposals of a voluntary shorter working week, reduction of the bonus for years of service and lower lunch allowance, as well as lower compensation for commuting costs were rejected by the trade unions. They see the move of the government as a fresh set of measures to cut the public sector wage bill. The unions concede to the extension of existing savings measures and they are willing to debate the shorter working week and commuting costs, but they deemed other measures unacceptable.
