Social partners given four days to make joint minimum wage proposal

Ljubljana, 19 January - Failing to agree on the ministry-proposed 4.7% rise in minimum wage, trade unions and employers decided on Friday to try and come up with a joint figure for the increase by Tuesday. Should they fail, Labour Minister Anja Kopač Mrak will push forward with her proposal.
