The Republika Srpska Cabinet in urgent procedure adopted five bills which will meet the obligation to restore the wages of civil servants to their level prior to the reduction, said Prime Minister Zeljka Cvijanovic.

She added that there are five categories in the Ministry of Internal Affairs that will receive the 5% increase, and they are the Special Police, Support Unit, the personal documents sector and two more categories.

Regarding education, Cvijanovic said that a mild increase of the coefficient from 21 to 22 was approved for 384 regular university professors.

She said that this process started last year with the first 5% increase of wages for civil servants, after which another increase of 5%, 10% or 15% had been made since the beginning of the year for 14,000 employees with secondary education.

The Cabinet’s objective was to introduce a little more justice to these laws, meaning that people who have the same level of education and do the same jobs shall have the same wages, said Cvijanovic.

The bills now need to be accepted by the Union and then forwarded to the Parliament for approval at a session scheduled for tomorrow.
