Slovenian police end 323 day strike
By bne IntelliNews October 6, 2016

The Slovenian police ended a 323 day strike on October 5 after the government agreed to their conditions and raised their wages.

Slovenian police led by the Police Trade Union of Slovenia (PSS) and the Trade Union of Slovenian Police Officers (SPS) started a general slow-down strike on November 18, 2015, demanding that Ljubljana honour promises by past governments that their wages would be raised by about 35%, as well as the payment of overdue overtime hours and special bonuses for specific police duties.

The government and the two unions reached a deal and signed an agreement on June 2, according to which police officers’ salaries have been increased on average by €100 gross or by €66 net per month.

The SPS announced on October 5 that basic salaries for September that were paid on October 5 are higher than the salaries paid on September 6. Furthermore, new job classifications will influence the payments to be made in November.

Besides the salary hikes already made, the latest agreement also contains other important provisions  including the implementation of a new system under which it would be possible to increase police officers’ basic salaries without additional negotiations. This is contained in the new law on the organisation and work of the police and is currently being considered by the parliament, Slovenian media reported on October 5 quoting the SPS’s statement.
