RESPONSIBILITY
FOR THE FUTURE
ELECTIONS 2017
20. - 21. OCTOBER
FAIR GROWTH OF WAGES IN COLLEC-
TIVE AGREEMENTS FOR 2018
J In September 2015, Czech-moravian
confederation of trade unions launched“End of
Cheap Labour”campaign with a clear purpose
to give a new impulse, inspiration, courage and
hope for collective bargaining.
J Much has changed since then. Today, no one
- including the public, media and politicians -
doubts the labour price is undervalued. ČMKOS’
analysis has shown where the causes are.
J We can proudly say, now, that the effort
of trade unions - the“End of Cheap Labour”
campaign - is beneficial to Czech employees. In
two years (2016 - 2017), the wage level will have
increased by 10 per cent.
J The government has significantly increased
the minimum wage and has increased wages
in the public sector. For this the Government
deserves our thanks. We also appreciate
the efforts of the government, of the Prime
Minister who rightly believes that without
increased pressure on the representatives of
the transnational companies operating in the
Czech Republic we can not manage to erase
the dramatic gap between the wage levels
of Western and Eastern Europe and who also
appeals to European policymakers.
J CMKOS recommends negotiating wage
growth by 8-10% in collective bargaining
for 2018, according to possibilities and good
economic estimates.
THE END OF CHEAP LABOUR
CAMPAIGN IN POLITICAL PARTIES’
MANIFESTOES
J Now, in the run-up to the elections, it is quite
legitimate for CMKOS to look into political parties‘
manifestoes and to ask politicians and how they
want to get Czech employees out of the trap of
low wages and salaries.
J We are pleased to note that the campaign„End
of Cheap Labour“ has influenced the programs
of all parliamentary political parties. Wages
and salaries are historically the first priority for
them. However, they differ significantly in how
to achieve the end of cheap labor in the Czech
Republic. They scratch the surface, most lack
a long-term strategy, and some even suggest
worsening.
J Wage and salary growth is possible only under
the conditions of the pro-growth government
policy accompanied by a fundamental
modernization of the Czech economy. Whether
we will really go this way, which CMKOS
introduced in its analytical program document
„The Vision of Changing the Economic Strategy of
the Czech Republic“, is the crucial question for the
future.
J We are calling on the politicians who are
seeking the vote of Czech employees, lures
and promises are not enough for us. Show us
the costs of your promises and their impact on
budgetary stability and on citizens.
We recommend to the voters: choose and
vote those parties that offer a real economic
program, those who have a real interest in
raising the standard of living of the working
people - the employees.
