The outcome of yesterday’s first day of social dialogue regarding the future of the minimum wage in Greece is important for two reasons: first, because the social partners vowed their support to the 13th and 14th salary and agreed any pay decreases (or wage freezes – practically it’s the same any way) to be implemented from 2013 onwards (with the signing of the new national collective agreement); and, second, because their stance provides a firm answer to the government’s ‘threat’ that it will legislate a reduction to the minimum wage if the social partners’ agreement is not deemed viable.
