Today, following wage index and supplement increases, all the demands made in the longest and largest ever strike in education have been met after an agreement was reached with the government on 2 December 2019, union leader Branimir Mihalinec said in a statement.

Mihalinec noted that the strike succeeded in having the job complexity wage index increase by 6.11% for all teachers and administration staff and all other support staff in secondary schools.

That increase was achieved in three rounds and the last round was planned for this February when January wages were paid out.

Mihalinec noted that the wage index for teachers with higher education qualifications now amounts to 1.406 as had been demanded by the union while the strike also led to a 6.12% increase in the base wage in public services.

“With a slight delay of the second phase of increasing the base wage, in January 2021 it reached the agreed increase of 6.12% and now amounts to HRK 6,044.51. That means that wages in education have increased by at least 12.23% since December 2019,” the statement said.
