LabMin Vasilescu on statements by President Iohannis: In private discussions we have the same approach. Is not that so, Mr President? Why do not you release the transcripts of the Cotroceni talks?

Labour Minister Lia Olguta Vasilescu suggests President Klaus Iohannis to release the transcripts of the talks at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace on the public pay law at a meeting also attended by Prime Minister Viorica Dancila.

”Right so! In private discussions we have the same approach. Is not that so, Mr President? Why do not you release the transcripts of the Cotroceni talks? To see exactly how ‘different’ we think about trade union demands and the fairness of the law … I was thinking that, since you are scorning us, maybe it’s good for everyone to know how we speak publicly and how in private. Some of us … ,” Vasilescu wrote in a Facebook post.

The reaction comes after Iohannis said Monday that it is the job of the Government to heed to the grievances of public servants.

“In public, we have very different opinions. I am warning that things are not going as they should and there is picketing, industrial action virtually every day, and the government is doing nothing but mechanically repeating that everything is okay. Everything is not okay, but it is the job of the Government to see where the causes of these grievances are and to settle them, “said Iohannis.

He mentioned the meeting with Prime Minister Viorica Dancila and Labor Minister Lia Olguta Vasilescu on the uniform public pay law.

“I think I gave a very clear signal at the time. In the matter of pay, things are not going as they should, there are problems, there are many problems and we have asked everyone involved in the process to get things done and improve the specific approach, “added Iohannis.
