Trade unions have reached agreement with the government on wage rises in the public sector as of January 2019.

According to Finance Minister Alena Schillerová there will not be a blanket increase and employees with lower wages should get a bigger hike. The average raise for public sector employees will be at around eight percent.

The projected wage increases will cost the state budget some 25 billion crowns.
