FSLI, in consultations over potential general strike on January 23

The Federation of Free Trade Unions in Education (FSLI) is carrying consultations with its members this week concerning the initiation of a general strike on January 23, dissatisfied with the fact that employees in the education system would not be given any pay raise in 2012, which could make up for the 25 pc-cuts. FSLI’s secretary-general, Liviu Pop, told Mediafax that trade unionists were also disgruntled with the portioning until 2016 of payments granted by court rulings concerning pay rights, and with the adjournment until January 1, 2013 of the law allotting a minimum 6 pc of the annual GDP to the education system. Trade unionists also call for the allotment of 2.3 pc of GDP in 2012 under the public budget law, dissatisfied as well with the Education Ministry’s measure deciding that trade union dues should no longer be featured on the payroll.
