Deputy Prime Minister: Salaries of civil servants will be increased

ArmInfo. The salary of a civil  servants will be reviewed.  Armenian Deputy Prime Minister Tigran  Avinyan stated this on September 11 during a government hour in  parliament, answering the MP's question about increasing teachers'  salaries next year.

According to him, the 10% increase in teachers' salaries, which  entered into force in September 2019, will remain in force in 2020.  In addition, as Avinyan pointed out, a general increase in the  salaries of all civil servants is expected. The Deputy Prime Minister  found it difficult to say how much it would be possible to raise  salaries, but assured that as part of the development of a public  service reform strategy, a global revision of cash rewards is  planned.

A week earlier, the government of Armenia at the meeting decided to  allocate 1 billion 665 million 675 thousand drams to increase  teachers' salaries. The funds will be used to increase the wage of 38  thousand teachers of educational institutions by 10%.

"The increase in teachers' salaries was envisaged by the draft state  budget for 2020, but given the increase in tax revenues to the state  budget, it was decided to increase the salaries of teachers from  September 1," Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports  Arayik Harutyunyan noted. According to him, other work is also being  done to increase the productivity of the system, introduce a new  testing system and the relationship of the salary level with the  result.

It is also planned introduce such a financing formula for schools  that the minimum wage increases to 108 thousand drams (currently it  is less than 100 thousand drams). At the same time, he denied rumors  that the increase is due to a total reduction in the teaching staff.  At the same time, the minister pointed out the problems of irrational  distribution of wages, which affects both the salary and the quality  of teachers' work.  In particular, according to him, there are  teachers who receive 25 thousand drams due to the fact that the  position is divided between 3-4 teachers. "This is a direct blow to  the quality of education. We are developing a procedure that will  also allow help to resolve these issues," Harutyunyan said.
