Working People of all countries UNITE

The workers are answering with protests against cuts in public-sector salaries in Banja Luka in Republika Srpska, Bosnia.


The government of Republika Srpska has announced cuts in the compensation paid for past years’ work, which is paid as a supplement to workers’ salaries, while the average monthly pay of teachers and police in Republika Srpska ranges between 400 – 550 euros a month.

This new austerity measure is related to the discussion in the Parliament of Republika Srpska on the new budget for 2017, since the government plans to limit the total public sector wage bill by reducing the workers’ salaries for the servicing of the foreign debt.

The protesting workers, among whom there are members of the RS police too, are not willing to accept the announced cuts in wages and will use all available methods to save their rights.
