Bulgaria -Tripartite council discusses minimum wage -May 26, 2015

Government decree which set the minimum wage in the country at BGN 360-380 overturned by Court.

On May 19 the Supreme Administrative Court (VAS) overturned a government decree which set the minimum wage in the country at BGN 360-380. The lawsuit was launched by the Bulgarian Industrial Capital Association (BICA), the Bulgarian Industrial Association – Union of the Bulgarian Business, and the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI). The organisations had challenged the ministerial decree on the minimum wage level in 2015, stressing that it had not undergone the mandatory coordination procedure at the National Council for Tripartite Cooperation (NCTC). On the initiative of the government the NCTC met on 26 May to discuss the minimum wage proposals.
