PM urges ministers to reduce wages in state-owned companies

Prime Minister Emil Boc criticised yesterday in a Government meeting the ministers that still tolerate very high salaries in state-owned companies with losses, sources told HotNews.ro. “ He referred mainly on Minister of Communications, Valerian Vreme, who failed to impose a rational wage policy and agreed to be signed a new collective labor contract at Posta Romana with huge salaries for executives, unjustified economic performance companies”, said the sources. Meanwhile, a considerable number of employees of the Romanian National Roads and Highways Company (CNADNR), involved in investment projects, were granted raises of up to 75 pc, Mediafax reports. Furthermore, some of the employees earn considerably higher wages than the interim director general, Daniela Draghia, paid a gross monthly wage of RON 10,352.

According to the list of gross incomes, obtained by “Romania Libera”, for the 599 positions in the company, the basic wage for a director within CNADNR can amount to a maximum RON 5,900. A project manager is allotted, according to the organizational, a maximum RON 3,800, an engineer or department head can earn a maximum RON 2,950, while the basic wage for an office head is RON 1,970.

Nevertheless, in reality, over 30 employees, mostly directors, were paid, in May, gross wages ranging between RON 10,000 and 17,000. For example, the auction director Mihai Horia Nicolae had a basic wage of RON 5,900, on top of which he received RON 4,425, a bonus for working with EU funds, RON 4,646 – corresponding to the 45 pc-executive bonus, and RON 2,096 – the 14 pc-experience bonus. Thus, Nicolae received a total gross wage of RON 17,067, that is, a net wage of RON 12,584, roughly the equivalent of EUR 3,000.

Madalina Darvaru, press advisor to the director general Daniela Draghia, who collected, in turn, a gross wage of RON 13,414 plus an EU funds-bonus of RON 8,680, confirmed the figures as far as she is concerned.
