State company wages to be cut by 25 pct from new year

As of January 1, none of some 120,000 civil servants working at public enterprises, known as DEKOs, will earn more than 2,200 euros per month due to a new pay structure that will lead to all workers at such firms suffering wage reductions of up to 25 percent.

Kathimerini understands that the new pay scale means employees will need at least 20 years experience and to hold a top managerial position to qualify for the maximum monthly pay of 2,200 euros. An employee with basic education but at least 22 years of experience will earn 1,633 euros a month.

All employees at DEKOs will be paid 12, rather than 14, monthly salaries from next year. The same applies to civil servants earning so-called special salaries, such as policemen, doctors, soldiers, academics and judges. Municipal workers will also see their wages reduced to 12 installments.

The strike by municipal employees protesting efforts to place hundreds of colleagues in a labor mobility scheme is due to end on Tuesday but their union, POE-OTA, has said it will take part in a 24-hour strike by civil servants tomorrow.

Speaking to Skai TV yesterday, POE-OTA president Themis Balasopoulos said the union would continue its protests over the next few days. He insisted that the municipal workers had the support of Greek society.
