Government awaiting negotiations on salaries of state employees


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - The government on Wednesday will address how to achieve savings in salaries of government employees, the total amount of money for salaries to be about ten percent lower. Top 09 proposal to introduce a single tariff at the table and pay the expense of solid components enhance motivation moving part does not match the opposition and trade unions.

The government is committed to the policy statement to reduce the wage bill for salaries of employees of state and public administration by ten percent. "Despite not going to just train," commented some time ago Necas fact that the conditions of this government refuses to budge.

With the proposal to address this commitment came the Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Jaromir Drabek (TOP 09), who proposed to reduce the entitlement of employees (tariff) wages component of ten percent, and vice versa expand the personal rating to double (from 50 percent to 100 tariff component percent and in exceptional cases even up to 200 percent).

With that, however, came with union representatives, who originally podmítali itself and reduce the wage bill by 10 percent. After Monday's meeting with Prime Minister to this request came the trade unionists, but still refuse to change the system of remuneration. "We simply believe that ten percent of wages can be saved in the current pay system," he said on Monday Jaroslav Zavadil, chairman of the Czech-Moravian Confederation of Trade Unions (CMKOS).

Trade unionists, among other things criticized Drábková non-conceptual design. "The current system was created a year and a half. During that time it was, counted and analyzed. Current proposal did not go through anything like this," commented Drábkův proposal Alena Vondrova, President of the Union of state bodies and organizations.

Drábkův proposal is in addition to reducing the wage bill are two other reasons. "When we were criticized our proposal that drives young doctors, the fact is exactly the opposite. Our concern that could be evaluated by a person with qualifications, because at the start to work and sees that a person who has less education than he is older but has a third higher salary, "he told Reuters earlier Drabek said, adding that the removal of" age discrimination "is another government priority.

The third priority, of which the Government does not intend to compromise, the condition is no increase in wages for unskilled occupations in relation to the number of years. "For example, a cleaner working for thirty years in one place, so although it has not grown any qualifications, but it significantly increased salary," said Drabek.

"We do not intend to convey in any way, but all three government priorities can be easily addressed within the current pay system," commented Drábek Vondrova arguments.

Trade unionists are not in principle opposed to changes in the remuneration system. They point out that the current system of remuneration of civil servants, when their salary is made up of an average 70 percent tariff component and the rest of the personal ratings, and got a positive assessment from the European Commission.Drábkův proposal indicate the contrary, de-motivating, particularly the proposal for the abolition of wage growth in relation to years worked.

"When you get to the place with the perspective that you will always have the same salary, so it's still quite de-motivating," commented Vondrova.

Prime Minister Necas already mentioned that the government of the Labour Code changes that affect state employees, while in the middle of the deal, but apparently does not fit a particular decision. "Of course we will act even more. And with trade unions and employers, and not only within the tripartite, but also in the expert groups," he said Monday after Prime Minister Necas negotiations with representatives of trade unions.
