Czech Republic - Pay rise for civil servants in the autumn - August 31, 2016

The government announced an increase of the salaries of the civil servants as from November already, two months earlier than planned. The volume of money for civil servants' salaries will be raised by 5 percent, while the base pay will increase by 4 percent. The government also agreed with raising salaries in education as from September. The salaries of teachers will increase by 6 percent and of other school employees by 4 percent. The total volume of finances for their remuneration (including bonuses) will increase by 8 and 5 percent, respectively. The earlier increase of salaries of civil servants - planned originally as from January 1, 2017 - has been demanded by the trade unions, which also pushed for an earlier increasing of the salaries in education. The unions said the economy is doing well and that is why the pay increases are possible.
