Today, members of six branch unions will hold a protest march in Banja Luka, under the slogan “There is no surrender, you must persevere”, to express their dissatisfaction with the fact that the Government of Republika Srpska did not fully comply with the Agreement on salary increases signed last year.
The gathering was announced for 12 o’clock in the Mladen Stojanović Park in Banja Luka, from where the participants of the protest, passing by the Government buildings, the National Assembly and the Palace of the Republika Srpska, will walk to Krajina Square.
Branch unions of the administration, internal affairs workers, medical doctors, nurses and technicians, workers in health care and social protection, as well as the Judicial Union of RS will take part in the protest walk.
According to the organizers of the protest, according to the agreement reached last year, the Entity Government was obliged to increase salaries equivalent to the amount of benefits for hot meals and holiday pay, which is an approximate increase of about 160 BAM per worker, but it did not do so.
Union representatives held a meeting with the President of Republika Srpska Milorad Dodik and Prime Minister Radovan Višković the day before yesterday, but no agreement was reached, BHRT reports.
