From the joint meeting, a request was sent to the Government of FBiH to, in accordance with the legal powers, react and not allow an enormous increase in electricity and thus prevent layoffs and the collapse of the economy.

The meeting concluded that it is necessary to reduce the burden of labor costs by passing a new law on FBiH contributions, which would make the contribution rate to wages a maximum of 30 percent, which would create conditions for further increase of the minimum wage agreed by employers and unions through collective agreements. it was announced from the Association of Employers of FBiH.

The management of the Association of Employers of FBiH and seven unions from the real sector sent a request to the Government of FBiH for an urgent session of the Economic and Social Council for the territory of FBiH to discuss minimum wages in that entity.

It was agreed at the meeting that negotiations on signing collective agreements between the Association of Employers of FBiH and branch unions will be continued, it is stated in the announcement.
