Tripartite fails to agree on higher minimum wage in 2022

(ČIA) Tripartite members did not find on June 21, 2021, mutual agreement on increasing the minimum wage from January 1, 2022. About 139 000 people (3.9% of employees) work for this wage in the Czech Republic. An increase of CZK 2,800 would mean an annual increase of 18.4%, from CZK 15,200 to CZK 18,000. The government also reported that its representatives, trade union and employer representatives also discussed, among other things, the preparation of the draft state budget, the draft directive on the European minimum wage, the amendment to the law on significant market power, the European social partners' framework agreement on digitisation and the current state of the epidemic situation.
