The Secretary of State for Public Administration, Jose Leite Martins, is reunited with the Trade Union Front (Fesap) on Monday.
On the table is the diploma on the review of salary payments for civil servants. The ruling marked the meeting in response to the request for further negotiation of the union structure. Speaking to Economic, Joseph Abraham stresses that Fesap “will take every opportunity to improve the degree,” while acknowledging that “essentially” the government will not amend the proposal.
“It remains our concern for workers to risk losing pay,” he said. The secretary of state had already closed for the negotiations on Thursday but, by law, is now obliged to hear the unions asked further negotiation. At issue is the law that frames the review of supplements: some will be integrated into the basic pay and others may be extinct. Will exist a single table of supplements with fixed values in euro (and not a percentage of salary).
