Bulgaria - Rally for better pay - October 31, 2017

The Confederation of Independent Trade Unions (CITUB) is campaigning for higher incomes and the protection of fundamental workers’ rights. CITUB’s main demands are higher wages (an additional BGN 100 – 50 euro – to the monthly salary of every worker), decent pay for overtime and improvement of the rights of the workers. The union insists on a salary of at least BGN 700 for youngsters who graduated university, and who work in their specialty. The ultimate goal is a level of salaries closer to the average European level, a minimum wage that guarantees a normal living, normal payment of overtime and night work, a fair distribution of the burden between labour and capital and between rich and poor, enhanced enforcement of social and labour law, especially in the area of safety and health at work, working time, wages and social security, and a guaranteed access of every citizen to quality education and health care.
