FSLI will go to the ECHR if gov’t postpones salary increases won in court

The Federation of Free Trade Unions of the Education Sector (FSLI) will go to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) if the government postpones until 2016 the salary increases won by teachers in Romanian courts. According to Liviu Marian Pop, quoted by Mediafax, the Executive wants to postpone the enforcement of the law that provides salary increases worth 5 pc in 2012, 10 pc in 2013, 25 pc in 2013-2015 and 35 pc in 2016 – something that is “unacceptable” for trade unions. The Budget-Finance Committee of the Chamber of Deputies decided in September to push back the deadline for paying the salary increases won in court by civil servants from December 31, 2012 – as provided by OUG 71/2009 – to December 31, 2016, and to modify the annual percentages of repaying the respective sums.
