Romania -Parliament decides to freeze public wages and pensions -November 9, 2011

Public wages and pensions will be frozen in 2012 at their December 2011 levels, under Ordinance 80/2010 passed by the Chamber of Deputies on Tuesday 8 November. This ordinance was initially designed to pass measures to reduce payment arrears and secure financing for the loans of the local public administrations. It passed 146 to 104 and four abstentions, with the opposition threatening to challenge the ordinance with the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR). Under the draft law, the gross pay of public employees for 2012 is kept at the December 2011 levels.
