Romanian Coalition Approves Public Wage Increases, Mediafax Says

March 12, 2012

Romania’s governing coalition approved an increase in public-sector wages from June 1, Mediafax reported, citing a party official.

Prime Minister Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu’s Cabinet must decide on the size of the increases, depending on budget limits, Mircea Toader, the head of the Democratic-Liberal Party’s group in the lower house of Parliament, said today, according to the Bucharest-based news service.

President Traian Basescu urged the government to find ways to raise the income of public-sector workers to the level before a 25 percent cut in June 2010. Romania will hold local and general elections this year.
