The minister offered health sector workers a seven percent pay increase, something they had already been agreed to in July, but was rejected by the government.
Following another round of negotiations with union representatives on Friday, Health Minister Milan Kujundžić told reporters that the two sides had reached an agreement in principle with health sector unions during their negotiations on a new collective agreement. He said that the deal will be presented to Prime Minister Andrej Plenković and the rest of the cabinet for their approval, but voiced his hope that the situation has been resolved.
Minister Kujundžić agreed that health sector salaries were still too low and that more work needed to be done to find ways of raising wages in the health sector, but added that currently the seven percent pay hike was pushing the limits of what was possible. After their talks union leaders were also received by Prime Minister Plenković.
