“Finance Minister Mateja Vranicar Erman raised concern about the predictions of strikes in the public sector in Brussels today. The demands for a further increase in wages in the public sector are ‘completely incomprehensible,’ and the failure to ‘wish to create additional expenditure appetites’ is important to ensure compliance with European rules, she pointed out.
Slovenia carefully monitors the implementation of budgets within the framework of European processes, especially the state as well as the financial plans of other general government units, and deviations above the planned budget should not be allowed , the Minister pointed out. ‘In this context, I am very concerned about predictions that come from Ljubljana in connection with strikes in the public sector,’ she pointed out.
