Trade union representatives have re-evaluated their negative stance toward the so-called employee bonus destined for low income employees.
Though at the beginning of August they criticised the proposal to introduce an employee bonus, they decided to support the measure at the session of the Economic and Social Council on August 25.
"We asked the Finance Ministry for a meeting, where we discussed the remaining issues," said Miroslav Gazdík, president of the Trade Union Confederation (KOZ).
The Finance Ministry assured them that the introduction of the employee bonus would not have impact on further increases in the minimum wage. SITA
