Bulgarian Trade Union CITUB To Seek 10% Hike in Pensions, Salaries Next Yr

The Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria (CITUB) will seek an increase in the bottom salary from 290 levs ($187/148 euro) to 330 levs as of January 2013 and at least 10% increase of wages in all public spheres.

"We would like the issue to be resolved in July, when the budget is being outlined," state-run Bulgarian News Agency (BTA) quoted CITUB president Plamen Dimitrov as saying on Friday.

The trade union will also insist on setting the taxable income threshold at 330 levs.
