Slovenia - Public sector workers have a deal - August 31, 2017

A deal reached between the government and public-sector trade unions on pay can be implemented, as enough trade unions signed the agreement, more than a week before the deadline. The law prescribes a signature of at least 22 out of 41 representative unions; 24 unions signed by early August. The deal, reached in July after months of negotiations, involves 71.4m euro to be spent on wages annually, of which 26.6m euro to increase the wages of the lowest paid workers such as cleaners, janitors and cooks, who earn below the minimum wage. A new round of talks is necessary for public workers not yet covered.
