Unions gearing up for strike over minimum wage freeze

Ljubljana, 4 December - The presidency of the KSJS confederation of public sector trade unions decided on Friday to launch preparations for an all-out strike to prevent a freeze of the minimum wage. The minimum wage should rise in January in line with the minimum wage law, but the next stimulus draft bill is said to contain a provision to delay the raise.
