Bucharest. Urgent decree, which was passed by the Romanian government on Monday provoked discontent amongst trade unions of education. Education trade unions are not agreed with the proposed rise of the salaries because in their opinion the salaries are not in conformity with the real situation, Romanian newspaper Romania Libera writes today.
Teachers should get two promotions of their salaries in 2009, which sum to reach up 28,2% depending on the normal salary. Thus the teachers with the lowest salaries and length of service should get the most serious rise of their salaries.
As an example a beginner teacher that get 1 135 lei will get 23,53% and his salary will reach up 1 400 lei (EUR 1 = 3,6 lei).
