BELGRADE – Finance Minister Dusan Vujovic said Tuesday that the salaries of employees in the health care and judicial sectors, cultural institutions and the police and the military will be raised by 5 pct and that pensioners could receive bonuses in the first days of December.

The salaries of employees in primary and secondary schools will be raised slightly more – by 6 pct – and slightly less in higher education institutions, while pensions will be raised by 1.5 pct (approx $3), and the amount of bonuses, which will be equal for all, is still under discussion, Vujovic told a press conference in the Government of Serbia.

“I would not go into details, we will have concrete figures in two days”, said the minister.

He added that the implementation of these raises also requires changes to certain laws.
