Non-execution of wages, Pupovci: I feel very sorry for this, but it is legal
The Deputy Minister of Education, Dukagjin Pupovci, in an interview on FRONTAL of T7, spoke about the issue of the suspension of salaries for teachers who are participating in the strike that started two days ago.
Pupovci said that he felt sorry for this, but added that such an action is legal, but that it has not been practiced in Kosovo.
He said that the Law clearly states that the contract and the right to payment are suspended.
Pupovci said that such a legal provision was not used in the previous governments, since according to him the previous governments tried to maintain some kind of relationship with the teachers.
“I feel very sorry for this. The salary has not been stopped, but reports have been requested to know to whom it is stopped. This is something legal, which has not been used in Kosovo. The law clearly states that the contract and the right to payment are suspended. The next article says punishment. This is not punishment. This applies to all European countries. It is a period of 10 years that this has not been implemented. I can say that the past governments have tried to maintain a certain ratio”, said Pupovci.
