The government considers the harmonisation of the Council’s position on the minimum wage directive to be among the successes of Slovenia’s EU presidency.
The Labour Ministry has not commented on the details, but said this directive could lead to an increase in minimum wages in many EU countries and have a positive impact on more than 25 million workers. “This was a remarkable success for Slovenia … as an agreement between member states was considered unlikely at the start of the presidency,” the ministry has said. The progress and efforts were also commended by Slovenia’s trade unions and other organisations.
