Agreement on salary increases for private-sector workers could be reached on Tuesday

October 22, 2012

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.
