Equally Raise Should Not Be Delayed, Inflation Should Not Melt Salaries
Memur-Sen President Ali YALÇIN made a statement about the inflation rates of April 2021 and the first four months announced by TUİK, with his posts on his social media account.
In his posts, YALÇIN included the raise in inflation, the meltdown and loss in salaries, and the equally raise offer made by Memur-Sen in his statements in the previous months and lastly on May 1st.
President YALÇIN, in the said statement; “Inflation rates of 1.68% in April and 5.45% in the first four months; inflation continues to erode and grow salaries and incomes, it requires making the headline, reminding us of our equally raise offer, and increasing the equally raise amount/rate." Reminding that the inflation-based loss in the salaries of public servants has increased, YALÇIN said in his statement; "Rising inflation-a staggering salary"; Economically the contradiction and an obvious injustice at the point of surrendering the rights of labor. With a straight calculation over April inflation, an inflation difference/inflation loss of approximately 2.45% has occurred regarding the salaries and wages of public servants. With the 5th Period Collective Agreement written and ruled by the public employer and arbitrator; For 2021, they were content with increasing the salaries and wages of public officials by 3% + 3%. We reacted to the offer, did not sign the text, and announced our reasons with our annotation.".
In the statement made by the Memur-Sen Confederation after the announcement of the inflation rates and the evaluations and demands made by him in his recent posts on the issue, the statement also referred to; Expressing the warnings and reactions of Memur-Sen to the attitude and decisions of the Public Employer and Arbitrator in the 5th Term Collective Agreement, YALÇIN; “The necessity and reality of the warnings we made as Memur-Sen, the insufficiency of the increase made by the Employer and the Arbitrator alone; It emerges in 2021 as in 2020. In the fourth month of the year, inflation reached an annual increase of 6% in salaries and wages. The inflation target and forecast that the Employer and the Arbitrator took as basis in August 2019 are now the reason for compensation with a declining raise. Putting an end to defeat and oppression in the face of inflation and realizing our increasing offer of raise by updating the rate is a requirement of the promises/justice."
As it is known, Memur-Sen; The salary increase rates of the public servants determined by the 5th Term Collective Agreement, which was established in line with the proposals of the Employer by the Arbitrator's decision, are insufficient, there is an inflation difference in the first and second 6 months of 2020, the public servants have lost income in addition to the loss of salary, based on the fact that inflation compensation must be paid as well as inflation compensation to compensate, and that inflation difference is inevitable in the first and second 6 months of 2021, public officials will be the lowest civil servant, effective from January 2021, in order to compensate for past losses and to prevent losses during the year, we had offered all public officials a raise of 10% of their monthly salary. Memur-Sen shared with the public that with the increase in inflation, the equally raise rate should also be increased.
