Czech Republic - Tripartite talks on increase of minimum wage fail - August 31, 2016

A tripartite meeting – government, union and employers’ representatives – did not reach a consensus on a raising of the minimum monthly wage. The Finance Minister backed an increase of no more than 700 crowns per month for a total of 10,600 crowns, which is also seen as suitable by employers. The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs wants the total to be 11,000 and unions 500 crowns more. Prime Minister Sobotka has backed an increase to at least 11,000. The trade unions demand 11,500 crowns. The monthly minimum wage was last raised at the beginning of 2016 – from the previous 9,200 crowns to the current 9,900.
