Czech Republic - Early retirement for miners - June 30, 2016

The president of the republic has signed a bill introducing earlier retirement of miners into law, along with several other government-sponsored bills. The earlier age at retirement concerns miners who have worked 3300 shifts in an underground coal mine or 2200 shifts in a uranium mine. At present, men retire at about 63 years, while the age limit is postponed by two months each year. The miners will retire seven years sooner than the rest.
