MOSCOW, December 3 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Ministry of Labour and Social Protection has adopted a programme of gradual raise of state employees’ wages for 2012–2018.
“Under the programme, average wages for state employees would be equal to those in the region’s economy, and for some professions – they would be double the amount,” the ministry’s press service said on Monday.
In 2013–2015 only, 1,332 billion roubles will be allocated for raised wages, where 240 billion will come from the federal budget, and 1,092 billion roubles will come from the consolidated budget of the Russian regions.
“Totally, over 2013–2018, we shall require 4.941 billion roubles, where 1,270 will come from the federal budget, and 3,671 billion roubles will come from the consolidated budget of the Russian regions,” the press service said.
The document offers three stages. At the first stage, in 2012–2013, it would be necessary to prepare a legal base for the programme, to raise wages for teachers and to introduce a transparent mechanism for wages to top managers.
The second stage – 2014–2015 – would be devoted to estimation of work effectiveness, as well as to professional standards and basic salaries per qualification groups.
The third stage – 2016–2018 – will finalise introduction of effective contract. By 2018, average wages for state employees should make between 100 and 200 percent of the average wages in regional economies depending on education and qualifications of an employee.
Over 14.4 million people are employed in Russia’s social sphere, where the majority of 5.2 million are employed in the education, while in healthcare and social services – 3.9 million people.
