Bill on Rehiring Greek Public Sector Staff to Be Unveiled Soon

Public Sector EmployeesThe draft bill to rehire public-sector workers sacked by the previous government, abolishing “anti-democratic” memorandum laws on disciplinary action and other labor issues and for the pilot implementation of the Citizen’s Card will be unveiled for public consultation in the next few days, Greece ‘s Alternate Administrative Reform Minister George Katrougalos said on Tuesday.
He did not unveil details of the draft bill, saying that Greek Parliament and the relevant authorities will be briefed first. In response to questions, he said the bill will go ahead as planned but did not rule out negotiations with the creditors, while noting that no objections had been raised thus far.
Among others, Katrougalos said the bill will include provisions giving permanent status to some public-sector staff with indefinite contracts who work in the inner public sector, to local government organizations and to public-law legal entities. He noted that the measure will not have any fiscal impact and will also facilitate the government’s plan for effective and efficient staff mobility.
It will also allow some 6,000 successful civil service exam candidates to select a post in one of the ministries that will submit their staff needs in the next few days, “releasing” them from the proclamation for which they sat the exam and allowing them to speed up their appointment to other vacant state-sector positions.
The Citizen’s Card concerns a measure that will facilitate the provisions of the draft law for the humanitarian crisis. Initially it will include an individual’s basic data — such as their social security AMKA number and their tax registration number (AFM) — and at a secondary stage the card will be extended to include additional information that will also allow its use via mobile phone.
