PSD MP says income cuts, layoffs will go on

The Government will continue to lay off public sector employees, and the remaining ones will have their wages cut off until 2014, the head of the Social Democratic Party (PSD)’s Social Policies Department, Deputy Ioan Cindrea told Agerpres. “The reduction of public sector wages is still on the agenda. Up to 2014, the current ruling is trying to cut expenses in wages by approximately 0.7 per cent of GDP. In 2010, (e. n. expenses in wages) dropped from 9.4 per cent to 8.7 per cent, and the Government intends to lower expenses in wages at 8 per cent next year. The same goes for pensions, from 8 per cent to 6 per cent (e. n. expenses will be reduced). This is what they have in mind: both redundancies and pay cuts,” Cindrea argued. He also claims that, at present, the Government is working on a bill that will do away, as of 2010, with indefinite contracts, a measure which would serve primarily the employers’ interests. “This is a commitment of the Democratic Liberal Party (PDL) to their political clients. The top entrepreneurs, those who supported them in the campaign,” Cindrea stated. A potential modification of the labour contracts will lead, according to the PSD deputy, to “instability and insecurity” and will presuppose that, at the end of each year, every, public or private sector, employee should renegotiate his/ her contract, wages included.
