Coalition parties ANO and the Social Democrats have come to an agreement on raising public sector salaries next year. The chairman of the latter grouping, Jan Hamáček, told journalists that the Ministry of Finance had agreed to considerably higher increases than originally proposed.
The Social Democrats leader refused to reveal the precise figure involved but other senior party members indicated that it would be around 10 percent. For their part, ANO ministers would only say that they continued to favour salary increases.
