Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal chaired a meeting on the introduction of unified approaches to remuneration of civil servants based on job classification.
The participants of the meeting discussed the reduction of disparities in the remuneration of civil servants in 2024 and the main steps necessary to complete the reform.
According to Denys Shmyhal, fairness and the elimination of abuses are the main goals of the civil servants’ remuneration reform.
“The new system will strengthen the role of the base salary and help eliminate abuses in the calculation of additional payments and bonuses. The changes in remuneration are aimed at reducing disparities and ensuring a fair approach to setting civil servants’ salaries,” the Head of Government said.
The draft law on the introduction of unified approaches to the remuneration of civil servants based on job classification has already passed its first reading in the Verkhovna Rada. The Prime Minister called for speeding up the process so that the new remuneration system could be introduced on 1 January 2024. He also said that the Government was preparing the state budget for next year, taking into account the new approaches.
