PM Mihai Tudose told trade unionists attending the CNSLR-Fratia trade union congress that incomes will increase as of early 2018. He also announced that he had proposed the trade unionists to clinch an agreement that would bring their collaboration under regulation.
“Incomes will increase as of January 1st. Based on an agreement between you and the government, we’ll have a partnership. The assistance we’ve got from the trade unions helped us draft the tax code, which is not understood by many and is blasted (…) The recent economic growth that ranks us second in the world must also reflect in the people’s welfare,” the premier stated.
Tudose also said that more multinational corporation had publicly announced they would not cut net salaries.
In retort, CNSLR-Fratia said the protests are frozen for the moment and that they would monitor if salaries would decrease.
“We keep raising signatures, but we can voice an opinion regarding the net salary decrease only when we receive the pay. We are in stand by,” said CNSLR-Fratia leader, Leonard Bărăscu.
