In the calculation not only direct wage costs but also increases in index-linked benefit expenditure, tax revenue and social security contributions have been taken into account.

In the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ calculation, it has been assumed that the additional increase will apply to employees in the entire municipal sector, because according to the logic of the labor market, it is somewhat impossible to obtain higher increases for others in the same negotiations.
