ATHENS – The PASOK Socialists who are the coalition partner for Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’ government won’t support changes in pay scales for workers.

In a direct attack on Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis from New Democracy, PASOK said he should “learn to consult more with coalition partners and spend less time on leaks to the media.”

Speaking to SKAI radio, Mitsotakis denied that he had leaked plans to the media and called for talks with PASOK. He also insisted that few civil servants would see their wages drop as a result of the salary changes he is planning.

Mitsotakis said that at the moment employees join the civil service with “high salaries in comparison to the private sector but leave with low salaries compared to the private sector” and that there is a need to introduce more pay grades.

PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos is the government’s Deputy Premier/Foreign Minister and has backed the austerity measures Samaras imposed on orders of international lenders.

The Socialists are also upset that Mitsotakis is proceeding with a plan to have worker evaluations.
