In a year, there will be a new law on unitary pay, the Minister of Labor, Raluca Turcan, announced on Monday, stating that there is not much work to be done on this law.

“Basically, we don’t have much work to do on this law (of the unitary salary – no), but after we finalize it, we need a political consensus, obviously, in the governing coalition and later to start negotiations with each socio-professional category. After that, to send the bill to the Parliament, there, obviously, there will be debates because we are not the holders of the absolute truth and in the end this law will come out “, said Raluca Turcan, on Monday evening, on Realitatea Plus.

Asked when the law will be ready, Turcan replied: “I believe that in a year we could have a new law on unitary pay and that it would be, indeed, unitary.”

“The exception has become the rule in the unitary salary system. Think that Law 153/2019 started from the premise of being somewhat in order. A growth grid for basic salaries and a growth grid for bonuses have been created, many of which are capped at 30 percent of the authorizing officer’s ceiling. But exceptions have appeared on this relatively correct principle and some socio-professional categories have outstripped all stages of growth, both for basic salaries and for bonuses “, Turcan added.

The Minister states that a fairly large dose of caution is needed when talking about the unitary wage law.

“An exceptional beneficiary category for which the increases have reached even 85 percent in addition to the basic salary is the health system, namely doctors. And there are doctors who with increases still end up having 85 percent in addition to the salary they would have without the increase of very dangerous, very difficult conditions. Or doctors were heroes at this stage. Think about it, like a decision maker coming in and saying, “Come on, we’re not interested,” Turcan says.

The minister said that at present, in the budget system, there are about 60,000 people who are paid the minimum wage in the economy. At the same time, in the private system we have about 1.3 million employees paid with the minimum wage in the economy.
