A new meeting has been called for Monday morning. Unions have said that they are closer to a strike every day an agreement is delayed. They remain firm in their demands of salary increases amounting to a total of 7 percent.

According to their last agreement the government was supposed to make an offer today but failed to do so.

“What is most important for us is to get to article 55 and that we begin to discuss article 55 as soon as possible. The minister said we could finish this within ten days. I hope they put forth the effort,” said Union representative Stjepan Topolnjak.

“We'll see and go over everything that has been signed until now, all articles in the collective agreement. There is no buying time here, in the end three or thirteen days can't be bought and the government will respect obligations derived from the collective agreement,” said  Minister of Health Milan Kujundžić.
