Trade unions and managements in the Czech Republic are concluding a growing number of collective agreements, including commitments to overall wage rises.
However, bonuses and other benefits such as holiday entitlement show less progress.
The country’s annual Information on Working Conditions survey monitors agreements between the social partners within companies and selected sectors. In 2015, it analysed data on salaries and working conditions from 1,627 company collective agreements concluded by 26 different trade unions, representing nearly 817,000 employees. 1,288 were in the private sector, and the remaining 339 in the public service and administration.
