Education trade unionists expect solution from Government related to demotivating wage in the system

Education trade unionists are expecting a technical solution from the Government next week, regarding the problems generated by the demotivating wage of the non-teaching staff, first of all, but also of the teaching staff.

“We had a meeting at the Government with the team appointed by Mr. prime minister (…) to whom we presented our problems and which are quite well known at the Government level. We emphasized once again that the problem of the non-teaching staff must be solved as a matter of urgency, this resolution meaning nothing more than the full application of Law 153/2017. It is the category that has the lowest salaries, between 1,800 RON and 2,200 RON. They cannot make ends meet with such amounts given that they do not have bonuses for working conditions, as there are in other fields, given that their overtime hours are not paid, that we have vacant positions that are impossible to fill. And then there must be a timeliness in dealing with this request,” Marius Ovidiu Nistor, president of the Trade Unions Federation in Education Spiru Haret told AGERPRES on Wednesday.

The union leader further said that he does not rule out other forms of protest, if the government does not come up with solutions to their problems, adding that an “emergency” meeting with the leadership of the coalition was also requested, because the decisions must be made by all three parties at the country’s helm.

According to the cited source, the government must take into account that it is not a general strike or a protest action that should make them think, but the fact that the birth rate is negative, “that we are depopulating as a state and that the majority of Romanians who left the country no longer want to return home”, while fewer and fewer young people are heading towards this profession.

The Free Trade Union Federation in Education, the Trade Unions Federation in Education Spiru Haret and the National Trade Union Federation Alma Mater picketed the Government headquarters on Wednesday, in order to draw attention to the problems generated by the demotivating wage they are dealing with.
