Labour ministry spokeswoman Slavomíra Selešová told the SITA newswire that parties to the agreement would discuss possible improvement of basic salaries in May 2011 depending on the development of the economic situation in Slovakia. The government and unions also agreed that severance pay will amount to one month’s salary and can be increased further in corporate collective agreements.
