Czech Republic -Civil servants reach deal, teachers still negotiating -September 15, 2015

Civil servants receive a pay hike of 3% as of November 2015. The wage deal was reached after negotiations between the finance ministry and the trade unions and will cover all civil servants paid out of the state budget, including fire fighters, police officers, the culture sector and labour and tax offices. Teachers and health care workers are not covered by the pay increase and are both still negotiating their sectoral agreements (the health workers hike was decided a few days later - see the news item beyond).
