Agreement on salary increases for private-sector workers could be reached on Tuesday
Representatives of private-sector employers on Monday will present the National Salary Council with a proposal for salary hikes at a hearing set to begin at 4 p.m.
During a meeting last week, unions asked for a salary hike of 4 percent for private-sector workers.
On Tuesday at 2 p.m., government officials led by the Labor Minister Sandra Piszk also will present a proposal. Two hours later, employer chamber leaders, union representatives and government officials will sit down to discuss each proposal and attempt to reach an agreement.
Public-sector salary hikes are scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1.
