The Labour Ministry and the Finance Ministry on Monday, October 8, announced to trade unions that there will be no across-the-board increases in the salaries of employees in state and public service in 2013.

"We haven't accepted the proposal of a 10-percent salary increase, while we aren't able to propose any increase at all," said Labour Ministry state secretary Branislav Ondruš. The trade unions have been given time to reconsider the whole situation. "The associations will have to reappraise their approach," Anton Szálay, head of the Health-Care and Social Services Trade Union Association, told TASR.

Nonetheless, according to Ondruš, the Labour Ministry is ready to compensate the freezing of salaries with other proposals. These may include measures that would not exert pressure on the state finances, such as the shortening of working hours, for example.
