The government will give a positive opinion with observations to the Uniform Pay bill, Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu announced on Friday in the opening of the government sitting.
Submitting observations to the Uniform Pay bill, currently under parliamentary debate at the Senate, have been the ministries of Justice, Public Finance, Development and Labour, Labour Minister Lia Olguta Vasilescu specified afterwards.
“An important topic on today’s sitting agenda is the one related to the memorandum on the Uniform Pay bill, namely the Government’s point of view. It is of utmost importance to us (…) to give this point of view today, at the Senate’s request, so that we can enter the normal calendar of approval for this draft law, by the end of the parliamentary session. It is a measure we have included in the governing programme. Our point of view (…) is a positive opinion, with observations,” said Sorin Grindeanu.
Lia Olguta Vasilescu added, at the PM’s request, that the Government is to give a positive vote so the said draft law be included in the parliamentary procedures, in the debate of the first notified chamber respectively, the Senate.
“All of the observations lodged by the above-mentioned ministries will be sent to the Parliament.(…) The law observes the governing programme and the targets assumed in this programme. Naturally, the bill could suffer amendments in Parliament, but I don’t believe they will be of the nature to alter the principles of this draft law. The initiators were in permanent contact with the relevant ministries and they’ve all had a very good collaboration. Hopefully, this bill will be endorsed by 1 July, as it is foreseen in our governing programme,” asserted the Labour Minister.
She added that it is feasible, considering that the draft law was directly submitted to the Parliament, and not assumed by the Government, which cuts by one month the endorsement deadline.
