Czech trade unions reject government's financial reform
The umbrella trade union CMKOS on Friday sent an amendment to the proposed government reform package to deputies, essentially rejecting its contents. The unions proposed the reform should not include major changes in the tax, welfare and health care systems. A demonstration will be held in Prague on Saturday to protest the reform plans. The unions oppose a single-rate income tax and a VAT hike, the introduction of fees in the health-care system and a capping of welfare benefits.

The Czech public finance reform could have been accomplished earlier and it should have been tougher, President Vaclav Klaus said on Sunday, adding that the current government plan is rather a set of partial stabilisation measures. Nevertheless, Klaus said that the draft package of legislation Mirek Topolanek´s centre-right coalition government has come up with is a step in the right direction.

At least one non-populist goverment in central Europe!

I wonder how significant change does that "reform-package" cause in the living-conditions. And I wonder how big is the support of that opposition for the new financial policies. Any Czechs around?

Czech trade unions will intensify pressure on deputies when they discuss the government's reform package, which unions strongly oppose, in the lower house in late August, but do not plan a general strike, the head of the Bohemian and Moravian Trade Union Confederation (CMKOS) announced after their meeting on Monday. The unions´ efforts will not end after a possible passage of the reform bills in the Chamber of Deputies, Milan Stech said, adding that they would hold talks with deputies and government coalition parties in the few next weeks.

So they won't reach anything either, like us either. Though in Hungary the amount of people being in trade-unions isn't significant because everyone stepped out of these in the 1990's.

- A package of economic reforms on which the Czech Republic's centre-right ruling coalition has based its future are likely to make it through parliament by the slimmest of margins, reports said Wednesday.

Following last-minute talks, the coalition has secured 101 votes in the 200-strong chamber, Czech press reports said. The leftist opposition has again vowed not to back the reform bills.

The coalition has so far failed to enlist Christian Democratic parliamentarian Ludvik Hovorka who opposes planned changes in health care.

But the government made sure that two opposition renegades, Milos Melcak and Michal Pohanka, who had already helped the weak coalition to pass a confidence vote in January, will support the bills.

Good news if they will succeed, we will have another reason to pressure Polish politicians. Oh how I hate them! Evil or Very Mad

According to the latest plan, Czechs are to pay a 15-per-cent income tax in 2008 from what is billed a super-gross wage - a gross wage and health and welfare insurance payments. The real taxation would amount to some 23 per cent, reports said.

In 2009, the income tax would drop further to 12.5 per cent paid from the super-gross wage, which would translate to real taxation of 19 per cent.

It seems that bright days for pockets of Czech citizens are coming.
