The Federation of Trade Unions of Macedonia (FTU) believes that the decision to increase the price of electricity is hasty and the increase will be borne by the citizens.

– The Federation of Trade Unions of Macedonia is not organization that regulates the prices of certain services or products, but believes that with the decision of the Regulatory Commission to increase electricity by 7.4 percent due to health crisis can easily turn into an economic crisis. If the hasty increase in the price of electricity is not withdrawn, it is necessary to increase all wages and pensions, in the amount of increased living costs or scaled by at least 7.4 percent and only to meet the average electricity consumption that one household would cost an additional expense of salary, pension or other income, said from FTU.

The analyses prepared on the basis of the trade union minimum basket, as announced, will be submitted to the Economic and Social Council in order to enable a salary increase, if the increase in electricity is not deviated from.

– FTU does not want our citizens, who will be unable to pay the increased electricity bills, to become a target for execution by the executors and therefore we point out once again that the Regulatory Commission should reconsider the decision to increase the price of electricity, said from FTU.
