Trade Union: Increase of Minimum Wage Is Part of Necessary New Type of Anticrisis Policy

The Executive Committee of the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria (CITUB) believes that Bulgaria needs a new type of an anti-crisis policy based on recovery through growth and employment, a statement by CITUB says.There is an obvious need for large-scale and radical actions based on the relation between economic growth, job market, incomes of the population and social security systems, the statement goes.CITUB recalls its demands that the minimum wage become 290 leva as of July 1 and that the practice for annual bipartite negotiations on a recommended index for increase of wages in the private sector is restored, proposing the national index for growth of the minimum wage to be set at 7-8 per cent in 2011.CITUB also insists that the increase of wages in the budget sector should be defined by tripartite negotiations within the National Council for Tripartite Cooperation after bipartite negotiations at ministerial level, according to BTA.
