According to the same ministerial decision, the definition process (unilateral by the government and not by the trade unions, as required by TER no. 98/1949 and 131/1970) of the minimum wage from 2019, is governed by secondary legislation 4046/2012, 4093/2012, 4127/2013 and 4172/2013, as maintained by the current government of the second article of Act 4564/2018 (Government Gazette A 170 / 21-9-2018) despite the announcement of a so-called "exit" from the Memoranda (on 21/8/2018) and despite his commitment not to apply the memorandum legislation.
According to the relevant law 4093/2012, the statutory minimum wage did not include (as before) fees and allowances.
In particular, the statutory minimum wage includes only the basic salary, ie no benefit or bonus due to family, studies, conditions, previous service, etc. (& # 39; absolute minimum wage system & # 39;).
As indicated: "In addition to the monthly regular overtime increase, no other increase is not included in the statutory minimum wage and wages".
With respect to past performance (overtime) (three years, multiannual, different time), the relevant regulations state below that: "Until the unemployment rate is lower than 10%, the statutory minimum wage and salary for a service completed after 14.2.2012 will be suspended."
Cat & # 39; akolouthian, From the above it follows that the period of three years after the third is abolished for old employees (until 14-2-2012) and all three years for new employees (after 14-2-2012) until the unemployment rate has been reduced to less than 10%.
As mentioned above, in the relevant provisions of Law 4093/2012, which remains fully in force with Law 4564/2018, for the supplements (bonuses) and the triennias the following applies:
- from 1-2 to 2019 and the system to determine (unilaterally by the government) the minimum wage and the minimum wage in the private sector.
We have a minimum wage and wage that is the result of unilateral government legislation, and not the result of an agreement and negotiations between the social partners, as it has been until now. For the first application of this new institution, the above no. 4241/1027 / 30-1-2019.
- the statutory minimum wage and wages from the entry into force of the aforementioned ministerial decree (1-2-2019) includes – by express provision of Act 4093/2012 (see section IA.11, page 5612 of the Government Gazette) only the basic salary or wage without absolutely no surcharge or surcharge.
The new government-regulated salary is therefore "stripped" of increases and allowances granted until 31/01/2019 as a result of service, personnel, family, education, etc. employee status. This is because the new minimum wage formation process meets the extreme neoliberal theory of "pure bald" basic salary without "any minimum wage system".
Extended service allowance or increase (three-yearly, multi-year, time-saving, etc.) is the ONLY benefit that is included in the statutory minimum wage, but with less than 10% unemployment.
Usually the institution determines: "As long as the unemployment rate does not fall below 10%, the legal minimum wage and salary for past benefits completed after 14.2.2012 will be suspended."(Footnote IA.11, p. 5612, 4093/2012).
For all employees, both old and new, the overtime increase of more than three years (or 9 years or more) has been abolished.
for young people who enter the labor market or join in the future after 14-22-2012 (without established triennias), no increase is allowed until unemployment falls below 10%.
even if unemployment falls below 10% (in 10-15 years in scientists' estimates), young workers (after 14-2-2012) will only have nine years (3 trimesters) but 5 (ie 15% in total) and NO 30% as determined before 14-2-2012, after the current government maintains the unacceptable regulation of Law 4254/2014 (I.7 page 1430)) for a reduced salary for the service of young employees!
For these employees, if they can work for 30 full years, only 9 years (3 trimesters) give an increase of 15%, while the other 21 years (7 years) do not count towards increasing their salaries.
After the announcement of the increase of the minimum wage to 650 euros gross, the three-year three-year (9 years) for those working with a salary and the six triennias (18 years) for those who work with wages, are formulated as follows:
Minimum youth wage below 25 years
Minimum youth wage of less than 25 years from 1-2-2019
No three years
1 three years
No three years
1 three years
An interpretative problem, after what has been explained above, will or will not occur within the context of the legal minimum wage from 1-2 to 2019 and then there is room for the Christmas and Easter gifts and the holiday allowance in the private sector, for new employees who were recruited for the first time after 14-2-2012.
This is because the absolute prohibition on awarding a bonus on the basis of the statutory minimum wage, in accordance with the provisions of Law 4093/2012 (see section I.11, point e, p. 5612), will present problems of interpretation. and will encourage some of the domestic and foreign employers who are active in our country to refuse to pay abusively.
Yield from year to year (biennial, three-year or five-year benefits) was the main wage / wage growth mechanism for decades in the private sector in Europe and Greece. With surcharge every three years (5-10%) after 25 years of continuous work, the worker / craftsman / employee in the private sector almost doubled his introductory (basic or minimum) salary.
Stability in working promoted the generalization of this mechanism. Staying with the same employer usually harmonises productive and social relationships and increases productivity growth in small and medium-sized enterprises. The time-lapse, shortcut, was the allowance that was directly dependent on the employee's working time and the basic factor of increasing his salary and ensuring his dignified life and the dignity of his family.
ENYPEKK (Union for the defense of labor and the social state) invites them after all this Trade unions and private sector employees react. Ask for the abolition of the law that minimizes the minimum wage and minimum wage, ask for the abolition of arbitrary governments and demands the explicit and legal protection of all increases and allowances, as well as the regular count of the service time normally on their earnings.
ENYPEKK denounces the derision of government and financiers at the expense of low-paid employees in the private sector and especially our young people and calls on the government, together with the other parties in the memorandum, to abolish these barbaric and unacceptable regulations.
