+ Tripartite Council (trade unions-employers-Government) meeting scheduled today
Just as it promised on several occasions, the Government will present the new Public Sector Salary Law whose goal is the stronger growth of low salaries and the restructuring of salary charts.
According to the explanatory statement, the draft law aims at eliminating the salary overlaps caused by the hiking of the guaranteed minimum gross salary, which led to the overlapping of the first 24 salary classes included in framework law no.284/2010, eliminating the different salary levels for the same position within the same institution, eliminating the equalizing of salaries for persons with different seniority, eliminating salary overlaps for employees with different education (higher education, secondary education, primary education), establishing and calculating salaries based on a single normative act, thus eliminating the legislative void especially for new employees etc.
Thus, the ratio between the minimum mainstay salary and the maximum salary will be 1:12 in the public sector. The lowest mainstay salary will be RON 1,250 for positions that require secondary and primary education, while the highest will be RON 15,000 for the highest position in the state. Mainstay salaries for each position will be established in relation to education, professional degrees/stages and scale marks. Promotion will be carried out usually for vacant positions, every 3 years, or in line with regulations included in the institutions’ own statutes.
The gross financial effort needed to implement the draft emergency ordinance will stand at RON 2.344 bln, and the net impact at RON 1.503 bln.
