School contract, renewal goes up: Resources for a gross increase of 105 Euros. The unions are also calling for action on the workload, staff and training

The address deed has been revealed. The parts of which it is composed were illustrated. But the substance has been known for some time now: with the new school contract one should not expect substantial salary increases.

On 1 February, the unions met with the Minister of Education Patrizio Bianchi for the act of address preparation for the renewal of the contract. The reference points of the document, explains the Ministry of Education, which is based on the renewal of the contract, as required by Legislative Decree 165 of 2001 (Consolidated Law on Public Employment), are the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, the Pact for School, the framework policy law for contract renewals of public administrations for the three-year period 2019-2021.

The real problem, however, lies in the resources available: while focusing mainly on measures unrelated to wage increases, the session focused on economic investment to raise wages.

The act of address is open and flexible but the conditions are lacking. That is, there is a lack of resources “, he told Orizzonte Scuola Pino TuriSecretary General of the Oil School.

A real change of pace is necessary with the recognition of the crucial role that school staff play, so that the quality of a pedagogical process is also supported by the full involvement of the whole school community and concrete measures to strengthen professionalism.“, Hie seet Maddalena GissiSecretary General of the CISL Scuola.

And in fact, the numbers that the ministry has not yet announced are already known, figure more, figure less: it would currently be 87 euros gross including a compensating element of 11.5 euros on average. With the addition of the funds of the budget law it would increase to 100-105 Euro gross per month.

Moreover, with the one-time 200 million euros for 2022, the bar of average monthly gross increases would be 120-125, then from 2023 to 100-105.

If that were the case, it would be higher than the last CCLN 2016-2018, signed by the then Minister of Education, Valeria Fedeli.

But there is little consolation for the unions: “We are now talking about an increase of around 4%, which is not only not enough to bridge the gap with the rest of the civil servants, but that in one year – warnt Rino Di MeglioNational Coordinator of the Fgu Guild of Teachers – will already be completely eroded by inflation forecast at 5%“.

The average number of hours of current teachers’ service is 36 – explains the National Coordinator of the Fgu-Gilda, citing the recent survey conducted by the Observatory on public accounts – and most of those hours are unpaid because the payments that teachers receive from the very modest school fund are often flat-rate. This means that many work for 3/4 Euro an hour. In addition, the enormous inconvenience of working hours, which are not continuous but subject to continuous fragmentation.“.

Elvira SerafiniSecretary of Snals Confsal, also recalls “Attention to the need to strengthen the workforce, in connection with the age-old question of class overpayment. Strengthening the infrastructures provided by the PNRR alone is not enough to solve the problem without intervening in the staff.“.

Marcello PacificoPresident Anief, during an interview with Horizon School “Today there is a need to not add hours of work to staff for training. Training must be paid and guaranteed to all staff, including precarious workers. For this reason, the curriculum must be extended to substitutes and administrative staff. Training permits must also be paid. ginn“.

I invited the Minister to ask the government for these resources, as they are preliminary to look at the economic part: we need to adjust salaries to inflation, recognize the year 2013, recognize some specific allocations (seat, biological risk, task for temporary workers), to guarantee legal and economic equality between temporary and permanent staffPacific Bay.
