Unions of Primorye fear for teachers' salaries

Unions of Primorye fear for teachers' salaries

The Federation of Trade Unions of the Primorsky Territory (FPPK) foresees problems with increasing teachers' salaries. Against the background of a decrease in the district coefficient, the regional authorities promised to increase the salaries of educators by 10% from January 2020. However, so far the trade unions do not see real action in this direction.

According to the FPPK press service, representatives of trade unions, together with members of the New School public council, demanded a response from the leadership of the regional specialized department. They wanted to find out how, by what percentage and due to what resources, officials intend to raise salaries for school teachers, who according to their data are forced to work at 1,5 -2 rates in order to get a normal salary.

“The proposed options are, rather, a shuffling of funds from the salary to incentive payments, but not a real increase in salaries,” the report said.

According to the regional education department, the average salary in the industry has reached 44 thousand rubles. At the same time, the region is in the 82 place of 85 in terms of the quality of general education in Russia, according to the monitoring of Rospotrebnadzor.

The position of the department in the need to change the structure of teachers' salaries, which will increase salaries. But this issue, according to regional officials, should be decided by municipalities.
