    AHOLD WAGES: Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka met with the
Dutch ambassador over wages at Ahold's Czech
supermarkets. Unions, which say workers make a monthly gross
wage of 12,500 crowns ($490.66), have been unable to agree a pay
increase. Ahold has offered an average 8.5 percent raise.
    Sobotka said the international firms make large revenues in
the country and pay big dividends to their owners but "leave too
little money for our employees here". He will meet local
management together with unions on Friday.

    POLLS: Support for junior ruling party ANO, led by Finance
Minister Andrej Babis, fell by two points to 32.5 percent in
November, according to the latest CVVM poll. Prime Minister
Bohuslav Sobotka's Social Democrats gained three points to 22.5
percent, narrowing ANO's lead. 
    ANO's rating had jumped in October following a strong
showing in regional and Senate elections while the Social
Democrats sagged.
