Public employee salary increases still up in the air

Some 288,000 public employes are waiting for a decision on what their salary increase will be for the second half of the year. 

The increase covers salaries of workers in the central government as well as workers in the 81 municipalities. 

The Consejo Nacional de Salarios ordered a 2.4 percent increase for the minimum wage categories in the private sector last month.

Public employee union organizers are expected to push for a higher percentage.
