"You have managed to lead the country into the biggest public sector strike in history," Alenka Bratušek, from the group of unaffiliated deputies, accused PM Miro Cerar ahead of an announced public sector strike to be held on Wednesday.
"There will be no chaos. From the very start this government has been engaged in intense talks with the unions and other social partners. Our agreements focus on the gradual elimination of the austerity measures, as our government has received demands which have been piling up for years. The economic growth allows us to gradually raise our costs in the public sector. We would like to divide the fruit of our economic growth in the most fairest of ways also with the public sector. And as they’ve been deprived for years, they’re demands are also bigger," replied PM Cerar.
The head of the SD Social Democrats deputy group, Matjaž Han, wanted to know whether the government had a plan for improving the net salaries of everyone who is employed. Cerar answered that during his government net salaries have increased with changes in the field regulating personal incomes. With regards to this year’s harmonization of the minimum wage, PM Cerar said that Slovenia’s economy was in good condition and that it could withstand more than just the legally required harmonization of inflation rates. He did add though that the wage raises must not disturb the balance of existing salary ratios.
