Croatia -Public sector might profit from growth rate -December 03, 2015

Workers in the public sector will have the right to receive an important increase of their wages as of 1 January 2016, based on an agreement signed in 2009. The government and the trade unions agreed on a six percent pay raise as soon as the official data of the Central Bureau of Statistics show the average GDP growth of two or more percent in two consecutive quarters. The GDP growth in the second quarter of 2015 was 1.2 percent, and in the third 2.8 percent, the average of these two consecutive quarters is exactly 2 percent. If the final data which will be published in early December confirm that the rate of GDP growth in the third quarter was 2.8 percent, teachers, doctors, police officers, social workers, administration employees – 240,000 public, state and local employees – should receive a raise of six percent starting 1 January.
