Romania - Government drafts law on public wages - May 31, 2016

The government has drafted a law on salaries in the public sector, which focuses on correcting the inequalities in the local healthcare system and introduces performance bonuses for the healthcare and education personnel. The project has been published on the website of the National Trade Union Bloc (BNS). The project will correct certain failures in the public wage system. It has been drafted after long talks with the social partners.
