Ecaterina Andronescu explained that the wages will be more motivating for professors beginners and when switching from one level to another. ‘We’ve tried to make the education system more attractive. We want to change the coefficients in order for professors to be motivated,’ said the official.
Andronescu pointed out that the trade unionists’ discontent referred to the rejection by the government’s representatives of 30-percent bonuses for the public employer.

‘The education system is the Cinderella of the system. We’ve lagged behind,’ said the leader of FSLI trade union.
