Budapest, July 27 (MTI) – Local council employees are holding to their demand for an average 30 percent wage rise and plan to hold a day-long strike in September, daily Magyar Nemzet said, citing the head of civil servants and public employees trade union MKKSZ.

The union plans to select a date that does not interfere with a referendum on mandatory resettlement quotas to be held on October 2, Erzsébet Boros told the paper. However, the demonstration needs to be held in September because the union is asking for the pay rise from October, she added.

The union is also calling for the introduction of temporary regulations on civil servants and public employees to clear up concerns related to local council officials, she said.
