Suddenly even the 580 euros per month under the National Collective Labour Agreement are in danger. According to information revealed by protothema.gr, the Troika teams which are in Athens, despite contrary statements from Brussels, raised an issue yesterday about reducing the wages provided for by EGSSE.
 
Long meetings took place yesterday at the Ministry of Finance and the General Accounting Office, with the general secretary Elias Plaskovitis and the Troika, involving an IMF labour specialist who afterwards met with Finance minister, Philipos Sachinidis.

According to ministry sources, the Troika raised the issue of wages as it doesn’t seem to be satisfied by the 22% cut in wages of new entrants, the breakdown of sectoral agreements, the abolition of the "after effect" and the latest cuts that have been made.
 
They insist, however, on further cuts in employer contributions and payroll tax, to increase competitiveness in the labour market, while it is significant that in the European Parliament yesterday, Commissioner Rehn and ECB administration member Asmussen set internal devaluation as a condition for remaining in the euro.
 
After the recent reductions of up to 22%, the basic monthly salary is already formed at 586.08 euros and the minimum day pay at 26.18 euros. For young people under 25 the reduction is at 32% and the minimum wage stood at 510.95 euros, while the day pay fell to 22.83 euros.
 
In addition to private sector wages, the Troika applied pressure yesterday to move faster towards layoffs in the public sector to fulfill the commitment concerning 15,000 removals of civil servants under the memorandum for this year.
 
Meanwhile, the Troika team that deals with taxation is pushing for the enactment of the new tax bill by June and the immediate filling of the post of the general secretary for taxation that has remained vacant for 2 months. According to reports, the person selected shall be in place by the end of this week.
