The new salary agreement with the CGFP will allow the government in the future to focus on the working conditions of civil servants. During the pandemic, the country was able to rely on a strong public service, which – together with the private sector – kept the country running.
Even if, due to the pandemic, there has been no structural financial increase, the agreement ensures that working conditions in the future will be more flexible, more transparent, clearer and more fairly structured: e.g. by telework or by harmonized structures in the lower careers.
In times of a crisis, social ease and security are important factors in the public sector. For the minister Marc Hansen, these are secured with this agreement. As such, the country can continue to count on a strong public sector.
