Take note – story published 6 years ago

Under an Education Ministry plan unveiled on March 14, the minimum wage of teachers will grow to €900 by 2022 instead of the current €680.

The next wage hike is slated for September 2018 when the monthly minimum paid to teachers will increase to €710; the 2019 figure is €750; the 2020 figure is €790; the 2021 figure is €830; while the 2022 figure is €900.

A total €6.8m will be required to boost the teachers' pay in 2018 and much more in the following years, peaking at €103m in 2022.

The plan also envisions rising wages for university and college teachers, for which €3.6m will be necessary in 2018.

Most of the extra money is expected to come from optimizing the school network.
