The Lawnet would like to answer your questions as follows:
On October 11, 2022, the Vice Chairman of the National Assembly made a conclusion on wage reform at the 16th session of the Government's report on the economic and social situation in 2022 and 2023.
In the report on the results of the implementation of the socio-economic development plan in 2022, the proposed socio-economic development plan in 2023 clearly states that salaries and income of cadres, civil servants, public employees, and employees are still low, especially now that there is a situation where a large part of these employees quit their jobs and change jobs, especially in education and health care.
Therefore, it is necessary to improve and effectively develop the salary policy, including adjusting the base salary from July 1, 2023.
Regarding the increase in the base salary, the majority of opinions agreed to increase the base salary to 1.8 million VND/month and increase the payment for some subjects as submitted by the government. The Finance and Budget Committee said that due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, the base salary has not been adjusted from 2020 until now, remaining at 1.49 million VND/month. This has affected the lives of many workers in the state sector.
Proposal on increasing the base salary to 1.8 million VND/month.
At the meeting, agencies and units are proposing a plan to increase the base salary for cadres, civil servants, and public employees to VND 1.8 million/month compared to the current level of VND 1.49 million/month. The expected time to apply for the new base salary is July 1, 2023.
At the opening session of the 16th session, the National Assembly Standing Committee will give opinions on adjusting the base salary for cadres, civil servants, and public employees.
Currently, the business sector has been adjusted to the regional minimum wage according to Decree 38/2021/ND-CP with the adjustment increased by 6% compared to before from July 1, 2022.
Therefore, civil servants, public employees, armed forces, people with meritorious services to the revolution, pensioners receiving social insurance benefits, and state-owned enterprises at this time will have their salaries adjusted.
At the same time, continue to urgently prepare the best conditions for salary reform for cadres, civil servants, public employees, and employees in state agencies in the spirit of Resolution 27-NQ/TW dated 21/21/ 5/2018.
Thus, in 2023, it is not expected to implement salary reform in the spirit of Resolution 27-NQ/TW dated May 21, 2018 but only increase the base salary for cadres, civil servants, and public employees working in state agencies.
