Re­ports about pub­lic sec­tor re­duc­tions wrong, say min­istries

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The gov­ern­ment yes­ter­day de­nied press re­ports that a new salary scale in the pub­lic sec­tor will re­sult in 40 per­cent wage cuts for all civil ser­vants. In a joint state­ment, the In­te­rior and Fi­nance min­istries said that the re­ports had been based on in­cor­rect es­ti­mates given by the ADEDY civil ser­vants’ union. The gov­ern­ment is plan­ning to present a bill to Par­lia­ment in July that will bring pub­lic sec­tor wages in line with those in the pri­vate sec­tor. It will also re­duce the num­ber of dif­fer­ent bonuses that are paid to civil ser­vants from 54 to just two.
