The resolution of parliament on reduction of salaries of the president, the prime minister and other high-ranking officials still isn't executed.
Deputies voted for this decision still on March 3. The accepted document parliamentarians cut off twice for the period of crisis till January 1, 2010 salaries of the president, the prime minister, the speaker, heads of their secretariats, ministers and their deputies, People's Deputies, governors and their deputies, an administrative board of Council of national safety. However, as it became known, still the parliamentary resolution didn't come into force. As the People's Deputy Alexander Sochka explained, except the decision of the Verkhovna Rada it is required also adoption of the relevant resolution of Cabinet of Ministers.
In the government are going to consider this decision only next Wednesday, and a delay connect with a number of difficulties. As the minister of the Cabinet Pyotr Krupko explained if rectilinearly to execute the resolution of parliament and to reduce salaries to the high-ranking officials, "logic" of system of compensation in state institutions and authorities will be broken. For example, salaries of deputy ministers can become lower, than at their subordinates. "I don't see here problems if it is a question of political positions", - the minister Krupko told, meaning ministerial chairs and other posts where there were appointments on political quotas. However he noted that reduction of salaries will concern also professional civil servants who for years worked before holding a high post. "For example, at positions of deputy ministers of such people there is a lot of", - Pyotr Krupko notes.
Besides, the minister notes that change of salaries can't happen unilaterally as involves changes of conditions of the employment contract. Without consent of the employee to change the employment contract it is illegal and fraught with judicial proceedings.
The similar situation already was in 2007 when the Cabinet of Ministers limited the size of pensions at the level of 10 thousand hryvnias. The former officials and People's Deputies, whose pension payments quite often exceeded 15 thousand hryvnias a month, didn't begin to be silent and went to courts. To avoid similar situations, the prime minister Yulia Timoshenko charged to the Ministry of Labour and social policy to develop the offers. Deadline for their end - on March 14.And on Wednesday, according to Krupko, the minister of work and a social policy Lyudmila Denisova has to make the corresponding report at government meeting.
