State sector union continues to challenge government on pay

Czech Republic

The OSSOO state sector trade union has provided further evidence of how workers in central administration have seen their real pay fall. It has written to the government setting out the latest trends which show that between 2021 and 2023 real incomes fell by over 8% in the private sector, 15% in the public and non-profit sector but by 25% in central government. The union also argues that while employers in the private sector have announced their willingness to increase wages by 5-6 %, no salary increase is foreseen for civil servants, on the contrary, the plans are for an overall cut in the pay bill.
