Public servants to receive 4-percent pay hike

Public servants and state employees will see their salaries rise by 4 percent and 3 percent, respectively, as of 2008, it was announced on August 20 in Bratislava.

The rise is the result of negotiations held between the Labour, Social Affairs and the Family Ministry and representatives of the aforementioned employees on master agreements for 2008 for employees whose jobs are designated as being in the public interest.

Both documents are expected to be ratified on October 17. TASR.
