No agreement over minimal wage

The government and employers are still unable to reach agreement with union representatives over the level of the minimum wage.

The Labour Ministry originally suggested a 6.8 percent increase lifting minimal wage from the current Sk5,570 (€134) to Sk5,950 (€143). After consultation with employers' representatives the new proposal is for a 9.1 percent increase, to Sk6,080 (€146).

According to the daily Národná Obroda, trade unions want the minimal wage to climb to at least Sk6,760 (€163). The final decision is in the government's hands.
